The residency of the Sing sing family ended with  a concert performance at Suffolk University’s C. Walsh Theater. Moustapha, Nogaye and Malick were joined by long time friend, Pape Faye. In the true spirit of the African Tradition the concert was an interactive event with lots of give and take between the musicians/dancer and the audience and with audience members taking to the stage to dance to the rhythms of the sabar drums.
