about

Representing a musical tradition that stretches back hundreds of years Guinean griot Mamady Kouyate plays with a melodic virtuosity that pulls in listeners who love great guitar players.

In the 60s and 70s, following Guinea’s independence from France music loving president Ahmed Sekou Toure fostered the development of a modern sound through the institution of a system of local, regional and national orchestras in which the artists were encouraged to create a modern sound based on traditional music.
