    Wally Badarou (real name Waliou Jacques Daniel Isheola Badarou) is a French keyboardist and producer, born on March 22, 1955 in Paris, France. Although he planned a career as a pilot, he was seduced by synthesizers and rock & roll, eventually becoming a well-known session keyboardist in England and his own Nassau, Bahamas, studio. Badarou's early career included work with M (on the hit "Pop Music"), Joe Cocker, Herbie Hancock and Island Records artists like Grace Jones, Black Uhuru and the British funk band Level 42. In addition to his production and keyboard work for Level 42, he has done several film scores, most notably Kiss of the Spider Woman. You can hear both the rhythmic sensitivity of his African heritage and the harmonic sensibility of his classical training in his music. His expressive and sophisticated synthesizer textures are full of life, especially on his more dance-oriented Echoes album. In the nineties, he released two albums, 1991's Chief Inspector and 1997's So Why.
