Élage Diouf

Master percussionist, Senegalese born singer-songwriter and performer Élage Diouf settled in Canada in 1996, to pursue a musical career that is still growing today. He was known in the first place for his innumerable collaborations, such as with André “Dédé” Fortin and his band, les Colocs. As the co-writer for the song Tassez-vous de d’là, Élage Diouf received the SOCAN Echo prize.

His numerous other collaborations brought about his joining, as a featured performer, the world tour of the Cirque du Soleil’s Delirium show, during which he takes part in more than 200 representations in the largest cities around the world and gains an unparalleled scenic experience.

In 2015, Élage launched his awaited second solo album, Melokáane, (“reflection” in wolof). Co-produced by Élage and Alain Bergé, the album offers many collaborations such as with multiplatinum singer Johnny Reid and guitarist Jordan Officer. Melokáane receives many accolades, including a nomination for World Music Album of the Year at the Gala de l’ADISQ (Québec), and a nomination for World Solo Artist of the Year at the Canadian Folk Music Awards (CANADA).
