We met up with the lovely singer-guitarist Sekou Bembeya Diabate who’s a national treasure from Guinea. He is best known for being the CoFounder of ‘Bembeya Jazz Nationale et Internationale’ which is a Guinean jazz group that gained fame in the 1960s for their Afropop rhythms. His style of music represents the very best of the Mandingue guitar tradition in West Africa. A tradition which he is passionate about keeping alive.
It was wonderful to hang out with him and his friends and sing a song about love. A perfect moment for the Total World Tour.
