Biography

Waflash was formed from a group of neighborhood friends who shared a passion for music and live in Thies, a town approximately 60 miles east of Dakar, the capital of Senegal, West Africa. In 1988, Senegal experienced a crisis in which students went on strike to demand better materials for their studies. As a result, many students did not go to school that year, providing an opportunity for the members of Waflash to focus their attention on music. Waflash completed their first recording 'Yoon Wi' in 1990. Since then, Waflash has played concerts, festivals and clubs around the country, and has become one of the most well respected groups in Senegal. The music of Waflash is a mixture of African, European and Asian music styles that speaks to the themes of love, the environment, women, and a united Africa. The lead singer, Masane, is known as one of the best female vocalists from the African continent. After proving their universal appeal, Waflash has since exported their music across Africa and Europe, including France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, the UK, and Scandinavia. Waflash has signed with French recording label Kavall Records for a three record deal, the first to be released in October 2008.
