Since he was 13, Alune Wade has almost never been without his bass. So much so that over the years spent on stage, she has become his backbone. He owes this love of classical music to his father, a symphony orchestra conductor, who taught him everything. When he was a teenager, he was spotted by Ismaël Lô, one of the greatest musicians on the African continent. For years, the two artists will perform together and establish themselves, together, on the international music scene. Today, thanks to his talent as a griot, the Senegalese virtuoso has become an incongruous figure on the world jazz scene. He has collaborated with the biggest names: Fatoumata Diawara, Marcus Miller, Gregory Porter, Joe Zawinul and Oumou Sangare.
