Cheikh M’Baye and Sing Sing Rhythm

Cheikh M’Baye and Sing Sing Rhythm is a drum and dance company of Wolof griots from Medina, Senegal. Founded in 1987, the group is named for their ancestor, Sing Sing Faye, the first master drummer of the Cape Verde peninsula.

They have performed and toured extensively in Africa, Europe, Canada, the Virgin Islands, and the U.S., and have recorded with such luminaries as Peter Gabriel, Youssou N’Dour, Randy Weston, Jack DeJohnette, Angelique Kidjo, and Craig Harris. Their CD, Mame Bouna, is a true representation of the traditional rhythms of the Wolof people of Senegal.
