Bajaly comes from a Gambian family who have passed down the tradition of musicianship through many generations. He is related to past masters Jali Nyama Suso and Foday Musa Suso. He has been playing and singing the traditional songs of the Gambia for almost 20 years. Dressed in traditional robes, singing ancient songs and telling folk tales of his native land, Bajaly is part of the legacy of ancient Africa. With a haunting, plaintive voice and prodigious technique on his unique instrument.
