The Badji Band is a quartet that seamlessly combines ethnic music with modern jazz, funk and fusion.

Kora, percussion, contemporary drum-kit, bass guitar, keyboards, trumpet, flugelhorn and three voices create endless possibilities for sounds, melodies and arrangements.

Besides Ablaye, the remaining musicians include: Marcin Markuszewski (Blue Cafe, Various Manx, Mika Urbaniak, Slawek Uniatowski), Jacek Pietrzak (Chuck Mangione, Jan "Ptaszyn" Wróblewski, Edyta Górniak) and Kamil Stasiak (Liroy, Lanberry).
