Viviane Chidid is a Senegalese singer from mbalax and RnB, born on 29 September 1973 in Mbour, a city in western Senegal, located on the Petite-Côte, about 80 km south of Dakar and bordering the seaside resort of Saly. She is known as the Queen of Mbalax in Senegal. In 2022, she celebrated her 22-year musical career. The one that upsets all codes, never stops reinventing herself, taking artistic risks. The one who sings in Wolof, French, English and sometimes adapts to different countries, we had seen her sing in sub-penny while she was in Guinea for a concert. Viviane is a sweet, melodic voice. She knows how to adapt to the rhythms. While most of her songs are about love, she’s more of a woman advocate. What is certain is that it has a style of its own, a style that appeals to its audience that has followed it for many years.
Viviane Chidid thus undeniably becomes the Senegalese artist with the most featuring to her credit. Her overflowing generosity leads her to collaborate with her colleagues even when they are not of the same register or musical style. The diva has the gift of succeeding her duets, duets that end at the top of the hits parades thanks to the originality and melody of the sound. Fata El President, late Pacotille Fall, Fou Malade, Ndèye Marie Gawlo, Youssou Ndour, Omar Péne, Mame Balla, Mbaye Dieye Faye, Wally Seck and recently Bass Thioung. On the international level, she did a duet with Congolese artist Fally Ipupa and with the group Les Banlieu’Zart de la Guinée.
The Queen of the Djolof Band is an international artist of unmissable talent, one of the heavyweights of Senegalese and African music. Used to touring and large concert halls in Senegal, on the African continent but also in Europe or the United States, she will once again prove her stage charisma on Saturday 04 at 8 pm at the Olympia in Paris.
