Abdoulaye Diabate and Super Manden

African Troubadour

The impressive ensemble Super Manden features an extraordinary collection of master musicians led by revered singer, Abdoulaye Diabate, dubbed the “African Troubadour.” As featured vocalist, Diabate, originally from Mali, was raised in the heart of the Jali (griot) tradition. With his passionate voice and overflowing energy Abdoulaye sings traditional West African tales that recount histories, genealogy and praise to patrons. With this rich tradition and the traditional African instruments of kora, ngoni, djbeme, and balafon, as well as guitar and flute, Super Manden explores the musical territory of West Africa, invoking the nations of Mali, Gambia, Guinea and Guinea-Bissau.
