Biography of Wally Badarou

Waliou Jacques Daniel Badarou is a musician from Benin. A synthesizer specialist, Badarou is best known as the longtime associate of the British band Level 42, known for its blend of funk, pop, soul and rock. He has co-written, performed on and (later) co-produced a number of the band's tracks since its debut album in 1981. Though not an official member of Level 42, he has long been considered an informal "fifth member" of what has otherwise usually been a quartet led by bassist, Mark King. Badarou can be seen in the video for "Love Games" on the Level 42 - The Collection DVD.
