In 1999 Ebou Gaye Mada started the group Boka Halat de Banjul from jam sessions with various musicians. Boka Halat means “joined ideas’ in Wolof. The combination of the various band members, their ideas, their musical background and their shared passion for music became the basis of a platform for positive energy. Boka Halat de Banjul combines the Gambian Mbalax with music from all over the world like jazz, afrobeat, reggae and more.
Anyone who sees the Boka Halat de Banjul playing gets hit by the infectious energy. Ebou and his band play with such passion, experience and love for music that the viewer is included in the rhythms and melodies through this sparkling performance. It’s a great experience to see so much power, quality and improvisation talent on stage!
