Laye Sow & his band

Acclaimed Senegalese musician returnes to St Ethelburga's. Plus special guest Maiuko

Laye Sow is back! The last time he performed at St Ethelburga's the Independent Newspaper put him in their top five gigs to go to that night. This accomplished singer songwriter from Senegal has performed at the Festival Hall, National Theatre, WOMAD, Glastonbury and with Africa Express at Koko's. Known for his unique voice and deep blues of the desert.

A Fula, from Podor in the Futa Toro region of Northern Senegal , like his fathers before him - Laye sings of everyday events and people he has known, of loves and passions of life and death. Here is a musician who can hit the notes that makes the hair on the back of your neck curl. The cousin of Baba Maal, with whom he has performed and collaborated.

���An addictive new find ��� it���s rare to hear such a perfect combination of voice and guitar ��� Laye Sow is surely one of the best young Senegalese singers��� Charlie Gillett (BBC Radio)


 This time he brings a special guest with him - Maiuko who has headlined many times at Ronnie Scotts.
Born in Mozambique of Royal ancestry, Maiuko is a singer/song writer representing another facet of the musical life of her country..
