Cheikh Ndoye

Once in while we experience the oncoming of an artist that in all respects seems to be ahead of his time. The depth of this kind of artistry on every level is more than evident on the debut Release of Senegalese Composer and Bassist Cheikh Ndoye. The well known term “Young Lion”, seemingly has reached even greater heights as of late by collaborating with such world renowned artist as Baaba Maal, breaking incredible ground musically at such a young age.

Early in his life Cheikh played the piano, and was attracted to many jazz greats. His love for Jazz put him on a historical path of investigation into this genre, again at quite an early age. After listening to Weather Report‘s 8:30 album, he was so captivated by Jaco Pastorius melodic and harmonic developments that he immediately fell in love with the bass guitar.

Africa’s flair for melody lends itself to being a cultural playground for the virtuoso bassist and over the decades, several have made their mark in the international arena. Bakithi Kumalo (South Africa), Linley Marthe (Mauritius) and of course, Richard Bona (Cameroon) make up a small part of a respected roll call. Today, Senegal’s own, Cheikh Ndoye, fits comfortably into and adds to this incredible legacy, not only as a bass master, but also as a multi-instrumentalist and composer of distinction.
