Music from Canada/ South Afrrica – Sigauque Project

Sigauque Project is the creation of Canadian-born Daniel Walter, a radio producer and musician who heads up a media company specialising in communication for social change, CMFD (Community Media for Development) Productions, based in Johannesburg. The group combines musical influences from across Africa – from a new take on Marrabenta to Senegalese Mbalak and Nigerian Afro Beat, with some smooth sounding jazz thrown in the mix, a pan-African musical journey. The music was originally created as part of music projects across Africa addressing issues such as human rights, gender, xenophobia, etc and is now performed by the Maputo-based band.
