Marius Seck

Marius Seck is a Senegalese singer who enjoys a certain notoriety in his country. Thanks to his exceptional voice, he immediately conquered the local audience and won the OSCAR DES VACANCES, an important Senegalese national award.  He dedicated himself to the composition of a personal repertoire that led to the production of his first album NDIOUKEUL (which means HOMAGE), in 2000; arranged with Samba Laobe Ndaye, Youssou Camara and the group Missal from Dakar.

In 2005, he published YEETE (which means MAKE SOMEONE UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY DON’T KNOW), a spiritual tribute to the female figure, with the participation of leading figures from the Senegalese music scene such as: Vieux Mac Faye, Jimmy Mbaye, Ibou Mbaye and the group Tabou from Dakar.

In 2006, eager to enrich and contaminate his style, Marius began a tour that took him to prestigious stages in France, Germany, Sweden and Italy. After settling in Asti, in 2007, he made his Italian debut with his single NATANGUE, with the Asti-based record label ONDESFERICHE. He has tooken part in several music events, including the Rebel music competition, Astimusica and Collision Festival.

It was also in Asti that he met the musicians with whom he formed the band SUNUGAL; bass, guitar, percussion and drums. They immediately blended naturally with Marius’s words and music, in a style that is not purely Afro, but which stems from the experiences of the individual musicians. The result is an energetic mix of Afro, pop, rock and reggae, which three years after its formation saw them record of their first album JOKO.
