We were totally mesmerised by Kadialy Kouyate in the AWIL studio, soothed by his smooth & perfect singing voice and stunned by his wizardry on the kora. Coming from one of the most distinguished griot families in Senegal, Kadialy’s musical education began during his toddler years alongside a whole heap of agricultural chores. His artful skills in music brought him to the UK over ten years ago and it’s London’s diverse community of musicians that have fed into Kadialy’s ongoing ‘sound archive’, laden with spiritual & humanitarian observations and experiences. He has worked with Baaba Maal, Mumford & Sons, The Royal Shakespeare Company, and many more. His wonderful second solo album, Na Kitabo, featuring members of his five-piece band, is a talking book of his latest collection of songs made over 2016, and Kadialy has played numerous roles in its production aside from being at the centre of its creative force. www.kadialykouyate.com www.focusorganization.com
