ENGLISH: Chaek Yussufa Sylla aka Chaek is an independent solo artist who writes, performs, records, and mixes.

His style is heavily based in rock and blues, but he experiments with alternative, punk rock, and jazz as well.
He is also a guitar and bass player in the band of Geoffrey Oryema, and this experience leads him to record and play along with Tony Levin, Pino Palladino, Manu Katché among many others.
Sometimes things just stick to ya! For a lot of people it’s Chaek’s powerful vocals and demanding stage presence. Chaek uses various instruments as slide guitars, Lapsteel, Dobros, guitars, bass and lapbass, perx, kalimba, flutes, throat singing... in order to create that singular and personnal universe which like a positive journey consolidate and elevate people.
With "Fifteen Hours in the Lobby" his third album, Chaek starts a turn toward accoustic World Music inspired by Momo Wandel Soumah the Guinean african bluesman. Nomadly recorded between Russia,Germany,France and UK during the year 2010 and produced with love by NoiseAround. This LP is currently distributed over the internet trough: http://chaek.bandcamp.com .
