With the unmistakable groove of West African soul music, Awalé intertwine Senegalese, Latin American, funk, jazz and influences from London, where they are now at home. Yewoulen is a call for leaders of the world and everyday people alike to Wake Up and work together for the sake of humanity. “A truly magical and uplifting cross-cultural collaboration…” – Jazz FM “Bringing a distinctive eastern take on afrobeat” – BBC Radio 3 “Awalé are doing something different with afrobeat and I do like it.” – C.G., BBC Radio Awale Jant Band is an eight-piece band born out of London's cultural melting pot. Formed in 2009, they have been writing new material as a creative collaboration between Senegalese singer Biram Seck and French musician Thibaut Remy since 2017.
