This Salón Sonoro evening we will dig deep in the beautiful sounds of Mali. The band from Samba from the small village Dabi in the Tombouctou region will be supported by master musician Diawara on kora. Together with Afro-Latin ambience music by DJ Jairzinho and Mc Storyteller, a soirée magnifique!
Samba Touré creates a harmonious blend of River Niger blues, traditional Songhai themes and Western influences. Like most Malian songs, Samba’s lyrics convey moral messages awell as introducing us to different elements of Malian culture, such as the importance
of family. Bursting with energy, Samba Touré’s music continues the blues legacy of the late, great Ali Farka Touré.

Djimé Sissoko: ngoni, tamani.
Ibrahima Séré: calabash
Mamadou Sidibé: bass
Layba Diawara was born in a family of professional musicians in Faranah (Guinea, West Africa) in 1961. His family helped him to find his way in the rich repertoire of Djali music and motivated him to play in different orchestras and to search for new experiences across regional and national borders. He played as a guitarist in different ensembles before he was asked to join the famous national orchestra “Bembeya Jazz International” in Guinea’s capital Conakry. As a guitarist in Bembeya Jazz, he made his first tour to Europe and the US in 1985. In 1990 he settled in the Netherlands where, till today, he plays different styles of music (traditional African, jazz, soul, classic), solo, and with different groups (African, Dutch, International). Layba is a multi-instrumentalist and plays kora, balafon, guitar, and ngoni.
