Dakar, Senegal

Omar Pene

Omar Pene (born 1956 in Dakar) is the emblematic lead singer of the Super Diamono. His musical style baptized as "afro-feeling" is a mixture of Senegalese sounds such as mbalax and influences drawn from the blues and jazz. His lyrics (about chronic social issues, paying homage or educational messages), his tumultuous and anti-conformist history (as a child, left his parents' house for the street), and his simplicity, as much as his music, has won him the admiration of his fans.
