WAAW Band™ is the first NYC-based group to present authentic and original mbalax music of the Wolof people from Senegal, West Africa! Popularized internationally by the renowned singers Youssou N'Dour and Baaba Maal, mbalax (or mbalakh) is a highly danceable music style characterized by complex polyrhythmic percussion and dramatic vocal harmonies. WAAW Band's original and fresh approach to mbalax reflects the diverse talents of the group's members, and how they infuse the musical traditions of their homeland with the popular styles they have absorbed as young musicians living in New York City.

The WAAW movement was started in Senegal, West Africa by Thierno Camara, a ronowned Senegalese Bassist/Singer/Sonwriter/Composer who had performed internationally with some of Senegal's most popular artists including Thione Seck, Cheick Lo, Fatou Gowel, Kine Lam, and Moussa NGom the SeneGambian. By 1998, Thierno had moved to New York City USA and began collaborating with American artists and other musicians from around the world, adding other sounds to his concept. By 1999 this eclectic collective of african and world fusion came to be known as the WAAW™ Band, touring the United States and Canada.
