Galaxy (36)

Profile:

Galaxy is a Finland based band playing a mix of Senegalese mbalax (a local genre of pop music) and international pop music styles. The band was formed in 1992 by three Senegalese musicians residing in Finland: singer and saxophonist Rane Diallo, bassist Pape Sarr and tama drummer Yamar Thiam. They all had come to Finland as members of the band Asamaan that had been formed by Finnish rock guitarist Hasse Walli, consisting entirely of Senegalese musicians except for Walli himself. The first line-up of Galaxy included three Finnish musicians, but soon drummer Ousseynou Mbaye and guitarist Libasse Sall were invited from Senegal to join the band in Finland. All of the band members were well known musicians in the pop music scene of Dakar before their arrival in Finland.
