BIG TALLE

On the evening of June 21, 2014, Sounds of the world attended the Nioukeul Hip Hop Festival hosted by MC Big Talle, a very famous and talented rapper from Saint Louis, Senegal.

The Festival was to promote his First Mixtape Ce Typse Ki released last year. Artists performing at the festival included: MC Eukhlou and the amazing Niagass, initiator of the DOmi Ndar, and the so original Nuul Kuuk which means 'Pure Black' a very engaged rap band. When you see them performing on stage, they would probably remind you the great collaboration of Talib Kweli, Mos def and Common in the music video 'Respiration'. Nuul Kuuk will be featured very soon on Sounds of the World. Also performing were Red Fusion, an awesome rap band with dope rap style and deep bi-lingual lyrics in Wolof and English. Also performing were the Combattant Crew previously featured in Sounds of the World: see the Link combattant-crew and many more...

For this first edition Big Talle really raised the bar by enlisting a whole ensemble of musicians to play with him, ranging from a baseman , a guitarist, a DJembe player and 2 chorists for to replay his songs. We really have to point out that it is not common to see a rapper performing his songs with such a big musical ensemble in Senegal.

What a performance, what a festival! A great man for a great “ Rendez Vous “. That's what was took place!

Well done Big talle!
