Master percussionist, Senegalese born singer-songwriter and performer Élage Diouf settled in Canada in 1996, to pursue a musical career that is still growing today. He was known in the first place for his innumerable collaborations, such as with André "Dédé" Fortin and his band, les Colocs. As the co-writer for the song Tassez-vous de d'là, Élage Diouf received the SOCAN Echo prize.

 

His numerous other collaborations brought about his joining, as a featured performer, the world tour of the Cirque du Soleil's Delirium show, during which he takes part in more than 200 representations in the largest cities around the world and gains an unparalleled scenic experience.

A renowned star in his native Senegal, he officially made a name for himself in Canada in 2010 with his first solo album, Aksil ("welcome" in wolof). This album received many accolades, namely a JUNO Award for World Music Album of the Year(CANADA) and a FÉLIX for the World Music Album of the Year at the Gala de l'ADISQ (Québec).

In 2015, Élage launched his awaited second solo album, Melokáane, ("reflection" in wolof). Co-produced by Élage and Alain Bergé, the album offers many collaborations such as with multiplatinum singer Johnny Reid and guitarist Jordan Officer. Melokáane receives many accolades, including a nomination for World Music Album of the Year at the Gala de l'ADISQ (Québec), and a nomination for World Solo Artist of the Year at the Canadian Folk Music Awards (CANADA).

 

 

My music is for the whole world to enjoy. It touches the heart, whatever the language. With upbeat songs that combine many cultures' influences, sounds that are warm, with good dancing rhythms, sounds that make you want to move and feel great. That is what I want for myself, my family, my planet.                                                – Élage Diouf

SHOW

Wutiko

For his brand new show “Wutiko”, Élage Diouf found inspiration in his life in Senegal as well as his life in Quebec.

 

Singing in Wolof, he delicately tackles the major themes of life and, for the occasion, he surrounded himself with several musicians (drums, bass, guitar, percussions) and special guests.

CRITICS

Engaging and charismatic tunes [...]. An album as filtered through Diouf’s strong vocals and the folky, melodic, quirky varied bits and pieces that make up Montreal." (★★★★1⁄2)

Erin MacLeod

Mirror Montreal

A beautiful album of soulful and lively beauty."

Yves Bernard

Le Devoir

One of these touching voices from which exudes human warmth and obvious sincerity."
