M'BOLO - - Electric Sweaty Senegalese Rock!
Saturday 5/20 - Electric Sweaty Senegalese Rock
$7 advance / $10 at the door
8:30 doors / 9:30 show

M'bolo, meaning "togetherness" in the Senegalese language Wolof, embraces this ethos in the creation of their high-octane hybrid of Mbalax and Rock. Lead singer/percussionist Cheikh Ngom began singing, dancing, and playing sabar drums at the age of four in the coastal city of Kaolack, Senegal. After performing throughout Africa and Europe, Ngom arrived in the United States, where he founded Mbolo with Dillon Zahner (guitar), Galen Willett (bass), Arone Ndiaye (keys), and Beza Gebre (drumset). Guitar, bass, keys, and drums fuse to form a rhythmically intricate lattice of propulsive licks, snaking leads, and hypnotizing grooves, punctuated by the rapid-fire attack of the sabar drums. Live shows are highlighted by the explosive energy of Ngoms dance moves, fusing his Kaolack roots with a Michael Jackson flair. Their debut album, entitled Mbolo, captures the fiery spirit of their live shows as well as the incantations of their more introspective and meditative chansons.
