Kakande featuring Famoro Dioubate

The balafon (xylophone) has electrified popular music in West Africa since the court of Emperor Sundiata Keita back in 1235. With his band Kakande, Famoro Dioubate updates this tradition with an explosive new groove. Lush vocals, sinewy koras, flutes, and cellos meet the virtuosic balafon of this master griot from Guinea. The band takes a unique approach to Mande music— acoustic, kinetic, textured and grooving. Dioubate's virtuosic balafon riffing is rightly front and center, backed harmonically by a sweet blend, creating textures that work as well in a dark, roiling jam. What comes through most is the freshness and esprit de corps of this band. The cross-cultural collaboration sets a new bar… and speaks well for the ever rising sophistication and quality of U.S. based Afropop projects. (Afro Pop Worldwide)
