About The Event:
The international man of music. MBENGUE (pronounced em bang) is a student of international fashion, international culture and international sound. A native son of the motherland, the MBENGUE family is from the city of Dakar, Senegal. MBENGUE’s journey of life, love and music have taken him to France, The Netherlands, Portugal, Thailand, Morocco, Burkina Faso, Niger, Gambia, Madgascar, Columbia, Cape Verde, Sierra Leone and beyond. MBENGUE spent his early twenties in the Northeast (U.S.) in attendance at the University of Connecticut skipping town to breathe in the life and culture of the big apple at every chance. Upon graduation, MBENGUE travelled to the Nation’s Capital to conquer DC nightlife. His influence on DC nightlife would have a loud and immediate impact on the nightlife culture. From his fashion sensibility to his ability to navigate any crowd and detail-oriented manner of hospitality, his audience and legion of followers grew overnight. Following a partnership with the powerhouse of DTNation, the seamless takeover of DC nightlife and beyond became imminent. So after more than a decade of influencing the crowd from NY to MIA, MBENGUE’s transition to rock the crowd was a natural one. What can you expect when MBENGUE is behind the turntables? Imagine a musical journey from the incomparable sound of Joao Gilberto to the street poetic of NAS, Jay Z, the uncompromising wonder of Kanye West and the fete of Cesaria Evora. Live the sound of MBENGUE!
