Founded in 1950 by United Nations Ambassador Artist for Peace Mr. Julien Jouga, the Senegal St. Joseph Gospel Choir brings the traditional and spiritual preservation of Senegalese sacred music to its audiences.  Now under the direction of Ambroise N'Diong, the group performs interpretations of 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 Portugese Creole.  The group interprets and combines both the Catholic liturgy and the indigenous Muslim songs of Senegal to create an extraordinary harmony between the two cultures that comprise the nation of Senegal.
