Guiss Guiss Bou Bess (FR/SN)
Guiss Guiss Bou Bess is the encounter of two artists and two worlds: Mara Seck & Stéphane Costantini.
Through their musical exchange, Stéphane and Mara want to establish new bridges between electronic music and African music, especially Sabar (Senegalese traditional percussions) and Mbalax (popular music in Senegal). Their main aim is to preserve the cultural and identity heritage from Senegal while making it accessible to any public.
By doing so, the artists wish to break down the barriers that Mbalax is facing on the International scene and make it understandable from a rhythmical side as well as from its identity. It is a way to stimulate the Senegalese scene to export its creations with a new kind.
