Led by the irresistible energy of master West African rhythm guitarist and drummer Mamadou Diop, MAMADOU presents a world-class cultural experience. The sound is a guitar and drum led groove that includes the rhythms of high-life, juju, rumba, samba, salsa, and reggae blended with authentic Senegalese ethnic rhythms. Though MAMADOU's songs are sung in several languages, the language of music is universal and every audience they perform for instantly understands and reacts with joyous dance.
Based in the Greater Boston area, MAMADOU has introduced their unique style of music throughout the New England area and beyond. Check their calendar to see when they will be in your area.
