Mamadou Diabate & Percussion Mania
Mamadou Diabate & Percussion Mania
Mamadou Diabate: he brings the sun of West Africa on our stage! Colorful as the atmosphere on a market place somewhere in West Africa is the music of Mamadou Diabate and Percussion Mania. Kanuya - the name of the latest CD - means friendship, respect and appreciation. You can hear and feel all these with the five musicians on stage. Virtuosic balafonmusic, supported by powerful African rhythms and refined by African chants. A complete scene, in which the body can´t sit still anymore…. See for yourself! . They owe their popularity mainly to the spectacular and virtuosic "balafon duel" between the two brothers, Mamadou and Seydou Diabate. The master of the Balafon Mamadou Diabate lives and works in Vienna. He composes, sings and plays the balafon as well as various percussion instruments. His concert tours took him to many contries and prestigious festivals. After eight CDs and countless concerts he became an indispensable part of the world music scene in Central Europe. “He brings the sun of West Africa to our concert stage! In this few words you can rewrite the emotion and energy in Mamadous music. “
