Paa Seck Diery Band, based in Somerville, MA, plays all original MBalax music. Based on the traditional rhythms of the Sabar Drum Orchestra, M'balax is the popular club and dance music of Senegal, West Africa. M'Balax can be combined with any and all sorts of other instruments.

Paa Seck Diery Band combines the Sabar drums with electric bass, guitar, keyboards and drum set. Paa's M'balax music is also combined with a vocal style that is unique to West African regions.

Adding in a few salsa and reggae numbers to the mix, Paa Seck Diery Band delivers intricate and sophisticated rhythmic grooves that are delightfully accessible to those who love music that lifts the spirit, and ones that are also irresistible for those who love to dance. Visit:
