Pan-african club music, from Senegal to Barcelona
Barcelona clubbers are getting increasingly familiar with Jokkoo, the hyperactive collective of which Baba Sy is a founding member. As well as promoting the sounds of the pan-African diaspora, Baba is a musical explorer, both as a producer and a DJ. He’s capable of setting any dancefloor alight, his work embracing both Senegalese culture and his native language, Wolof. His mixes take in singeli, dancehall, durban house… the futuristic sound of global club music. Welcome to his world.
