Manssata was born and grew up in Mbour (Senegal) within an extended family of griots and musicians . From an early age she has learned the traditionnal repertoire of western Africa, more specifically the mandingo tradition. She is also a dancer and was part of several dance companies in Senegal.
She came to Europe in 2009 and decided to settle in Belgium. Very much in demand as a dancer and backing vocalist, she has strated her own group in 2018.
We are currently recording several songs which will be featured either on an EP or a full CD depending on how the project will evolve.
Manssata already sang on the song Sanaa which is featured in the second CD of Orchestre Toubab. This track has been broadcasted on Brussels Airlines and in several radio stations around the world during the spring/summer of 2018
