Latest news »Pape and Cheikh tour the UK
This is a rare opportunity to catch one of the most interesting new groups to come out of Senegal beautiful, lyrical, uplifting songs driven by acoustic guitar. The tour begins on Thursday 19 June at Londons Jazz Café and runs until 31 July. More details of dates can be found under the Tours section.
Pape and Cheikhs passionate, driving vocals are as effective on the acoustic funk songs as the folk-rockers, but the pair are at their best when backed just by their own guitars on songs like the gently exquisite Jello. A great album (Robin Denslow for Songlines Magazine)
