Guiss Guiss Bou Bess has a mission—to share the rich rhythms, culture and identity of Senegal with the world.
Guiss Guiss Bou Bess, is the merging of artists and of worlds: Mara Seck, Aba Diop (Senegal) & Stéphane Costantini (France). Through their musical exchange, Mara, Aba and Stéphane have built a bridge between African and Electronic music—with a particular focus on traditional Senegalese Sabar drumming and the popular musical style in Senegal known as Mbalax.
Guiss Guiss Bou Bess breaks down cultural barriers to make the rhythms and identity of Mbalax understandable to everybody. The vision is to preserve the cultural heritage of Senegal while at the same time making it accessible to the world beyond.
The project debuted in Dakar, Senegal with a show at the « Galerie Atiss » in April 2017, which was quickly followed by a residency at the French Institute in November and a concert at the Théâtre de La Verdure (Stage of the Dakar French Institute). Since then they have performed at Womex, MIL, Atlantic Music Expo, Kehinde Wiley’s Black Rock in Dakar, Senegal and will perform at Trans Musicales in December 2019.
