by Nelima Kerré | February 19, 2009 • Sorry for the short notice. Senegalese sensation Goh-Bi System will be here tonight. Here’s an excerpt from the Cedar Cultural Center’s web page.

Gokh-Bi System (pronounced Go-Bee), has emerged as one of the leaders of the African hip-hop movement. Born in the slums of Dakar, the capital of Senegal in West Africa, GBS was formed in 1995 by three childhood friends Mamadou Ndiaye (MC), Diasse Pouye (MC), and Pape “Bathie” Pouye (manager) who grew up together in one of Dakar’s poorest villages, Pikine, Guinaw Rail which translates literally into “the other side of the tracks.”

Doors open at 7:00pm and cost is $15.00 for more info, click here.
