Hi everyone, want some ouest african sun in your track ? Just let me know...
Since i heard some mandingoes melodies in Bobo Djulasso's ceremonies back in 1999 i've been listening and studying mandingo's music and history. Through that i had the chance to learn and perform with great grios as Prince Diabaté, Kemo Kouyaté, Ba Cissoko, Seydou "Kanazoé" Diabaté in Guinea or in France.
Before that I've been introduced to flamenco's guitar technique by Salvador Paterna and to Afro-Peruvian one by Pépé Torres.
Also guitar player of Sofaz, a band who mixes Maloya's Reunion island transe with Gnawa Mandingo and Electro ones... second album in progress...
I read your tabs and parts or you can send me audios of your tunes. I can also propose you some ideas if you want...
have a nice day and listen to world guitar artists !!!
