HISTORY

Main article: Ndut initiation rite
Ndut initiation rite

The history of Njuup
Njuup
derives from the Ndut classical teachings . Young Serer boys in the Ndut (nest ) were required to compose religious songs during their circumcision rite of passage in order to take their minds off the pending circumcision operation, develop their artistic skills and spirituality. These songs are Serer religious in nature. The Njuup
Njuup
tradition is the progenitor of Mbalax
Mbalax
and for a long part of its history has remained within the confines of the Ndut. Unlike the Mbalax
Mbalax
which is a party music , the Njuup
Njuup
tradition is religious, and it was not until some prominent Senegalese artists such Youssou N\'Dour (himself of Serer heritage ) began to incorporate it in their early works thereby giving birth to the Mbalax
Mbalax
music. All Mbalax
Mbalax
artists are strongly influenced by the Njuup
Njuup
tradition. There are also other Senegambian artists who sing the purest form of Njuup in the Serer language
Serer language
, some of these include Rémi Jegaan Dioh , the late Serer diva - Yandé Codou Sène , etc.
