Wearing a mask as a symbol of the facelessness and anonymity of the common man, Lágbájá is a Yoruba word that means somebody, nobody, anybody or everybody. While many of his songs simply entertain, most are about serious social issues, with impactful messages in humorous ways. To share his African grooves, Lágbájá has recently developed Africano Manchine, a digital library of African rhythms; an artistic marriage of man and machine featuring in his newly Elektro Groove Music. Lágbájá is driving interest in sophisticated African music, rich in the traditions while cosmopolitan in attitude.
Artist supported by the program Equation Musique.
