A Non-stop Celebration of Song and Culture

The Senegal St. Joseph Gospel Choir was founded in 1950 by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization’s Ambassador Artist for Peace, Mr. Julien Jouga (1931-2001). Now more than 44 years ago, the choir is led by Music Director, Mr. Ambroise N’Diong, and is composed of the Cathedral’s chorale, that of St. Joseph’s of Medina, who interprets Gospel/Negro Spirituals, traditional African Songs, and the magnificent masses that Julien Jouga composed in his country’s four national languages: Ouolof, Diola, Sérère and Portuguese Creole. The Senegal St. Joseph Gospel Choir, composed of 15 Singers and four Traditional Senegalese Drummers, therefore represents the humanity and the fraternity that exists within the Capital City, Dakar, and throughout the country of Senegal.
