Papis ‘Peace’ Diouf

Papis Peace Diouf was born in Fatick (Senegal) on 09/30/1974. His approach to music at the age of twelve years was guided by his older brother Amdy, who he began studying electric bass and guitar with. Peace had his first musical experiences in the group Dental Africa, composed of young musicians of his neighborhood. His entrance into the world of professional music has been confirmed by his collaborations with the famous Senegalese singers Fallou Dieng and Alioune Mbaye Nder, having played with them in various international tours. Peace is very requested as a session musician in the recording studio, in fact he has participated in about half of the album of the greatest Senegalese vocalists.

PEACE DIOUF TRIO

Papis Diouf is one of the most talented guitarists of Senegal. After playing with the greatest artists of his country, he has decided to base in Rome. From his origins in the Sérèr ethnic group, he has been able to enrich himself as an artist meeting modern western music without undermining the deep and deeply rooted African tradition. Together with the drummer Moulaye Niang and the pianist Roberto Durante (and occasionally the bassist Rasa Alminaité), they propose a reinterpretation of the organ trio mixed with powerful traditional African grooves rearranged and original compositions by Peace.
