Je joins mes condoléances à toutes celles publiées depuis que nous avons appris le décès de Nelson Mandela jeudi soir.

J'ai eu l'occasion de jouer 2 fois pour Madiba :
* en 1988 à Londres avant sa libération, en parallèle du grand concert pour ses 70 ans au stade de Wembley (lire ce qu'en dit Tracy Chapman qui y fut découverte http://www.about-tracy-chapman.net/1988-nelson-mandela-70th-tribute-concert/ )
* en 1995 en Afrique du Sud, après son élection à la Présidence, où j'ai pu recroiser Miriam Makeba (qui a lontemps vécu en Guinée), Hugh Masekela...

A very old photo found by FRoots Mag's Ian Anderson.
Could be 1988, when I was recording and touring in the UK under the name "Jali Musa Jawara"...
Behind me is a very young (like me) Billy Bragg...

Mory Kante - Soumba

My half-brother Mory (we share the same mother) in an old song for the album "A Paris" in 1983.
At that time, my 1st album was released in Abidjan and I was heading to the UK...

Griot – Maître de la Kora – Korafola – France / Guinée
Introduction

Français :
Djeli Moussa Diawara est né en 1962 à Kankan (Guinée) dans une famille de griots. Son père est balafoniste, sa mère choriste et son demi-frère n’est autre que Mory Kanté. Chanteur et musicien, Djeli Moussa a développé une relation très intime avec sa kora 32 cordes. Resté très proche des rythmes traditionnels, Djeli Moussa Diawara a su par ailleurs extraire de son instrument mandingue des styles inattendus : Salsa, Flamenco, Blues et Jazz.

English:
Djeli Moussa Diawara was born to a family of griots in Kankan (Guinea - West Africa) in 1962. His father is a balafon player, his mother is a backing singer while his half-brother is Mory Kanté. As a singer and a musician, Djeli Moussa has developed a very intimate bond with his 32-stringed kora. He has not wandered too far from traditional rhythms, which never prevented him from using his Manding instrument for unexpected styles: Salsa, Flamenco, Blues and now Jazz.
