MODOU TOURE

Heir of the legendary group Touré Kunda, the first African group to achieve worldwide fame in the 1980s, Modou Touré was born into music. He spent all his childhood and young adult life in Senegal, he then moved to London to follow his dreams and pursue his music career when he was 22 years old. He has been singing and writing music ever since he can remember
 
His voice strikingly echoes that of his father, Ousmane Touré, who was the inspiration for his choice of career. Passionate about music from a tender age, he was to be found regularly singing up a storm and playing the drums under his neighbours’ windows in the modest district of HLM4 in Dakar, where he spent his childhood.
 
For Modou, looking for beautiful melodies is the "center of gravity" of his compositions. This inspires his lyrics (in Wolof, Mandingo, Soninke, French or English) and his music. He sings evocatively of the ills of modern society, the teachings of the elders, friendship and romantic relationships, hope... His ultimate finesse, his pure and sharp guitar playing harmoniously introduces drums, bass, percussion and the electric guitar. Modou reveals the power and beauty of his sublime voice, carrying us from Dakar to London via Paris and back.
