Mbalax: Senegalese Trap Music?

well minus the Trap..Mbalaax is an upbeat genre stemming from Senegal. Notable figures in Mbalaax include Yousoou N’Dour, Pape Diouf, and Waly Seck. Some of the music carries a strong message about religious leaders and faith, while others brag about Mbrokhe ( A Senegalese dish) . Both call for some electric dancing and an awesome show. Here is one lovely Mbalaax song about L-O-V-E  called Lula Nex- Aida Samb

ps I heard it means something around the lines of “Whatever you want“.

So burn some thiouraye, put on your bine-bine, make your lover his favorite meal and get cozy 😉
