Who is Carlou D?
Ibrahima Loucard dit Carlou D was born on 13 December 1979 in Dakar of Senegalese nationality. He made his first steps in school in 1985 and left it in 1995 for the benefit of music. He was a member of the rap group PBS Radikal before embarking on a solo career that propelled him to the front of the stage.
At the age of 12 he felt a facility for singing, and with time he has a crazy love for music. From the age of sixteen (16), in addition to music, he developed a crazy passion for dance and this allowed him to win with the group “NAVAJO”, the prize for the best choreography at “Oscars des vacances” edition 2002.
From then on, he began a solo career. He meets experienced artists who advise him and allow him to have a perfect mastery of the acoustic guitar. Currently, Carlou D never separates from his guitar.
This experience bears fruit, when he has the opportunity to participate in the album “Khalanam” of the singer Daby in 2000.
During the same year, he met Ass Malick and Seydiman with whom he formed the group “SKA BLUE”. They compose together a song produced by the agency for the cleanliness of Dakar which will know a real success with the Senegalese public.
In 2003, the artist Carlou D joined Positive Black Soul (PBS) and became one of the leading artists in the African Hip Hop movement. Now the group is composed of Carlou D, Baay Souley and Didier Awadi.
His enormous potential will open the doors of recognition in their company. This is how he will release his first solo album in 2004 “Séédé” or witness of his time.
Carlou D is gifted with the guitar and has a suave and exceptional voice. He is today, in his generation, the master chef of musical melodies capable of making the most insensitive sensitive.
In 2006, he released a second opus entitled “Weeru Waay”. The latter allows the Senegalese public to grasp the style of the artist who beyond Hip Hop develops a facility of expression in other musical styles much more classical.
Thus he was approached by the organizers of the first African opera named “Bintou Wéré” among which he will evolve for almost two years. Waziz diop, Michel Mavros, Oumy Sy, Germaine Acogny …. To mention only the latter will be an important contribution in terms of experience and knowledge. This transition to the Sahel Opera of the Prince Claus Association of Amsterdam is an important turning point in his career because he learns a lot.
His atypical career allows him to discover unsuspected artistic talents.
It is in this context that he will prepare his third album entitled Ndeye Dior named after his late mother. This album of consecration will be released in 2008. The artist expresses himself without any restraint on his feelings, his messages and approaches musical styles quite different from those that he knew until now.
Because beyond the Hip Hop which allowed the Senegalese public to discover it, Carlou D comes to propose a new style that he calls Muzikr; Alliance between music and Zikr in acoustic sounds.
As part of the promotion of this album, he presents himself to the international public through various performances at MOMO’S in London, the Territorios festival in Seville and recently at one of the most important annual music event: WOMEX (World Music Expo) organized this year (2009) in Copenhagen, Denmark.
He is currently pursuing his career in company and plans to release an international album in the course of 2010 with many surprises.
