The Many Sounds of Carlou D
By Leslie Simon
The Senegalese Singer/Songwriter Carlou D has gained a loyal following with his varied musical styles and commanding but oh-so-cool stage presence. From his beginnings with Senegal’s first hip-hop group Positive Black Soul, to collaborations with artists like Swedish-singer Eagle-Eye Cherry, this multilingual West African star mixes Afro-jazz and hip-hop with a lot of rhythm and soul to create a sound that invigorates and uplifts.
Watch some of his beautiful, cinematic videos below to get to know the music of Carlou D, then join us on August 20th at the Outdoor Amphitheatre for a fantastic night that layers the spiritual over complex beats.
