The Senegalese singer and bass virtuoso, was asked by Marcus Miller to record on Miller's album
‘Afrodeezia’ from 2015 - then you know you're in for something special!

Then again, the super talent had already been headhunted by Ismaël Lô at the age of 18, and then continued to perform and record with almost all the contemporary music legends one could think of: Salif Keita, Joe Zawinul, Bobby McFerrin, Fatoumata Diawara, Wolfgang Muthspiel, Bela Fleck, Cheick Tidiane Seck, Oumou Sangaré,
Paco Sery, Deep Forest, Gregory Porter..

It seams obvious that Alune Wade is quite extraordinary, and it certainly shows with his latest solo album, 'African Fast Food', released in 2018.

A tasty, incredibly elegant & tight album, with utterly groovy bass lines, great arangements, warm sound with cool vocals & funky beats, hard to sit still when listening, it inspires dancing with the coolest moves. A mix of Afro Beat, Afro Jazz, it sounds as Urban as can be, and includes some of the greatest musicians from Paris, New York, Havana and Dakar. Alune Wade 'African Fast Food' is ready to groove the great stages of the world in 2020!
