Master percussionist, Senegalese born singer-songwriter and performer Élage Diouf settled in Canada in 1996, to pursue a musical career that is still growing today. His numerous collaborations brought about his joining, as a featured performer, the world tour of the Cirque du Soleil's Delirium show, during which he takes part in more than 200 representations in the largest cities around the world and gains an unparalleled scenic experience.

In 2015, Élage launched his awaited second solo album, Melokáane, ("reflection" in wolof). The album offers many collaborations such as with multiplatinum singer Johnny Reid and guitarist Jordan Officer. Melokáane receives many accolades, including a nomination for World Music Album of the Year at the Gala de l'ADISQ (Québec), and a nomination for World Solo Artist of the Year at the Canadian Folk Music Awards (CANADA).


Melokáane is the self-image that shines through, in good and bad times, during one’s lifetime. It blooms with our choices, thoughts and actions. Then, one day, it takes shape, and settles to become a reflection: the reflection of a life’s journey. Filled with irresistible rhythms that make fans bask in waves of contagious euphoria, Melokáane makes Élage Diouf a sensational Senegalese soul rocker.

Élage’s music – a blend of pop, world, blues, folk and asiko - thrives at the artistic crossroad of artists like Carlinhos Brown, Peter Gabriel and Andres Cepeda. The musicality of the wolof language explains his singing mainly in his mother tongue. Wholehearted in his artistic approach, charismatic, authentic and easygoing in his personal as well as his public life, people love him, and he clearly loves them back. His live performances are noticed thanks to his knack at inciting public participation by dancing, by singing, and by inviting people to come up on stage and dance with him. The warmth and remarkable quality of his voice as well as his varied influences make him a unique artist.
