The pinnacle of versatility, talent, and musicianship, Pascal Bokar has made a name for himself in both the national and international music industry. Bokar impresses everyone with his innovative combination of musical styles, culminating into the unique genre of music he calls AfroBlueGrazz. The name derives from combining Afro-Funk, Blues, Bluegrass and Jazz. AfroBlueGrazz is a fusion of textures and styles drawing from traditional musical genres that includes West African rhythms, melodies, and percussion fused with Blues, Bluegrass, Jazz, R&B, and even Gospel. Pascal Bokar, as a music composer, vocalist, and guitarist, proudly expresses the musical textures of his Senegalese and Malian roots by including fiddle, balafon, and banjo with his AfroBlueGrazz Band, making a sound completely his own.

AfroBlueGrazz is a celebratory musical group that generates an infectious groove, powered by West African balafon (ancestor of the marimba) sabar drum, banjo, and fiddle. The band brings out high-velocity bebop scat guitar, drums, bass, vocals, and keyboards. This compelling musical style is perfectly displayed by the capable hands of Pascal Bokar and his AfroBlueGrazz Band.
