Laye Ananas comes from a Griot family in Dakar. Griots is a tribe spread throughout Africa that maintains people’s culture – such as storytelling, music, dance, acrobats, song etc. And they are once called to homes when a baby is born when someone gets married, funerals, special occasions and so on. The artist is inherent from the parents of their children, and often has a particular artist as they hold, to sing, drum, play, ball games. He came from a poor family of 7 children who barely had anything and started working early.
