No other band performs with such a command of African poly-rhythms and as high an energy as MAMADOU. Performing original songs and arrangements, MAMADOU has developed a unique sound that WILL GET YOU TO DANCE!! The rhythms that emanate from MAMADOU are infectious, and have to be experienced to be understood. The truly multicultural band is led by the immensely talented Mamadou Diop (pronounced ‘maa-maa-doo jop’).

Prior to coming to the United States, Mamadou Diop was considered one of the greatest rhythm guitarists in Senegal, and unique in his approach to music. He toured Africa, Europe and Canada performing with some of Senegal’s most noted musicians and bands. Today, Mamadou resides in Massachusetts, constantly writing and arranging new materials that are introduced routinely in front of live audiences. He and his band are ready to bring their creations to you!

Says Mamadou… “It is my wish for this music to be in direct contact with the soul of the audience, to lift up their spirits and to bring a sense of freedom to their minds.”
