BEN AYLON

Defined as a border-breaking musician and percussionist, Ben is known for his contemporary Senegalese drumming, explosive burning rhythms and cutting-edge hybrid drumming techniques. Ben's solo act 'One Man Tribe' showcases his innovative drumming style, playing a set of 10 different African drums simultaneously, creating a massive sound of a tribe of drummers inspired by the deep Senegalese drumming traditions.

In January 2020, Ben gained national recognition in Senegal after being featured on famous Senegalese TV shows with millions of viewers, having solo shows around the capital, Dakar. His activity in Senegal led to a personal meeting with Youssou Ndour and musical collaborations with Cheikh Lo, Omar Pene, Awadi and Doudou Ndiaye Rose.

Ben's drumming style is considered as the 'next generation' of Senegalese drumming. His creation has been acknowledged and approved by master drummers Doudou Ndiaye Rose and Ali Ndiaye Rose.
