Music at the Market: Amadou Kouyate

Music at the Market: Amadou Kouyate

Join Amadou Kouyate and his kora at the UDC Van Ness Farmers Market for a family fun performance.

Amadou Kouyate is the 150th generation of the Kouyate family of Manding Diali (oral historians/musicians of West Africa) and the first generation born of his father’s lineage in America.

Amadou performs a musical montage on the 21-string Kora and rhythmic presentations on Djembe and Koutiro drums. His repertoire ranges from traditional songs from the 13th century to original contemporary compositions incorporating blues and jazz riffs.

In addition to his solo work, Amadou Kouyate performs with guest artists as well as with The Kouyate Family, Urban Afrikan, Farafina Kan, Manding Jata and Spank Rock.
