Afro-Mandinka Soul by Seckou Keita Quartet

Swahili Modern


  • Senegalese artist Seckou Keita is most famously known for his solo performances on the kora and for his work with Baka Beyond. Sitting somewhere in between these styles is Afro-Mandinka Soul, which includes a talented trio of musicians (an Italian bassist, a Gambian percussionist, and an Egyptian violinist). The songs bridge the gap between the traditional and modern, with Keita's famous kora being played throughout much of the album.

    Afro-Mandinka Soul is warm and uplifting, the perfect album to play when gathering with friends or relaxing. It is a great companion album for Baka Beyond fans, as well as lovers of Senegalese music.
