The brainchild of Berlin techno luminary Mark Ernestus, Ndagga Rhythm Force have spent the past few years establishing themselves as an undeniably exhilarating live act on stages around the world.
Bringing his electronic production sensibilities and taste for dubwise to the rhythmic landscape of Mbalax, Ernestus tends to reside at the mixing desk when it comes to Ndagga’s live shows, leaving the audience enthralled in the energetic grip of the on-stage nine-piece. Characterised by hypnotic polyrhythmic drums guided by the vocals of Mbene Diatta SECK, Ndagga Rhythm Force’s music is best experienced in its live form, where studio versions of their tracks are wrought out into extended exploratory jams.
This live event at Band on the Wall will be their debut performance in Manchester, as part of our ‘Music Connects Us’ programme – following a day of interactive workshops facilitated by the Marcus Intalex Music Foundation – inviting participants to immerse themselves in Senegalese music, dance and culture. Info coming soon at www.mi-mf.com
