Kakande

An African Griot in New York

 
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.

Kakande is:
Famoro Dioubate, balafon & vocals
Yacouba Sissoko, kora
Raul Rothblatt, cello
Sylvain Leroux, flutes
Kolipe Camara, djembe
Sean Dixon, bass
Andy Algire, drums
Dave Ellenbogen, guitar
Missia Saran Dioubate, vocals
