Led by the irresistible energy of master rhythm guitarist and drummer Mamadou Diop, the MAMADOU band presents a world-class cultural experience.
The sound is a guitar and drum led West-African pop that includes the rhythms of high-life, juju, rumba, samba, salsa, and reggae blended into authentic Senegalese ethnic rhythms.
Though MAMADOU's songs are primarily sung in many languages including his native Wolof, the language of music is universal and every audience they perform for instantly understands and reacts with joyous dance.
As a God-given talent and natural artist and professional Musician, I have traveled throughout Africa, Europe, and the United States and Canada.
The person I am today is the result of amazing life experiences and enriching encounters. Life is difficult and life is worth every difficulty. Even if your troubles were multiplied by ten or by one hundred, they would not exceed in magnitude the joy, the beauty, the possibilities, the experience of being alive. The only reason troubles come along is because life has already come along.
