Senegal recordings: rappers Matador and I-Science

One of pioneers of African rap, Matador has won countless awards for his freestyle slam. As well as his own successful solo career, he’s one of the founding members of the band Wa BMG 44 and also has a collaborative project with multi-percussionist Pape Dieye fusing hip-hop and traditional African music.

He’s also a hugely respected figure for his initiatives in the community and with his youth project Africultururban. With his manager Amadou Fall Ba, he founded the FESTA2H hip-hop Festival and the Léopold Sédar Senghor centre in Dakar’s Pikine district, an arts space offering training and recording studio facilities. Matador invited us over to chat and share ideas, and this is where we did a recording session with him, rapping freestyle. Matador is truly an artist and an activist.

While in Dakar, we hooked up for an afternoon of filming with the I-Science crew at the very happening arts center and work space Les Petites Pierres, a great place where music meets arts meets fashion. Founders Senegalese slammer Staz and Italian-Egyptian singer Corinna Bassene were joined by fellow rapper Backie Diakho for what was a perfect cocktail of a cappella voices to get the vibe going. Live, I-Science mix a number of musical styles, from hip-hop to reggae, afro to funk, they all get thrown into the mix - and what a mix! One of the up-and-coming bands on the Dakar scene, we recommend you check them out!
