Description

Malian guitar legend Moussa Diakité has toured the world as lead guitarist for Salif Keita, Toumani Diabaté, Oumou Sangare, The Super Rail Band de Bamako and now with exciting new five piece band Wassado looks forward to returning to Bellingen for their first performance at No 5. Church Street.

Since migrating from Mali, Moussa has been an influential force in the Australian African music scene performing with Badema (The brothers), the Afro Jazz, Keyim Ba and Chosani Afrique.

His new album, Doncomodja was recorded at the legendary Studio Yeelen in Bamako with some of Mali’s finest musicians and contemporaries including; Djelimady Tounkara, Cheick Tidiane Seck, Kasse Mady Diabaté recent Grammy award nominee Bassekou Kouyaté and multi-Grammy award winning kora player, Toumani Diabaté. The result is a highly acclaimed tour de force as “Diakité re-emerges as humble torchbearer, unsung hero and ambassador for Malian culture”.

Moussa Diakité and Wassado will be performing tracks from Doncomodja, fusing traditional Malian styles with blues, jazz, Cuban and Afro-rock, creating a dynamic mix that is mesmerizing, sophisticated and irresistible.

General Admission $20 or including a copy of the brilliant new album, Doncomodja $30.
