The Successors of the Mandingue

4 August 2021

Donald Gordon Theatre Stage

N’famady Kouyaté is a young master musician from Guinea (Conakry), now based in Cardiff. A talented multi-instrumentalist who wowed audiences across the UK and Ireland with his modern interpretations of traditional West African Mandingue songs and rhythms supporting Gruff Rhys on the Pang! album tour. 

N’famady’s primary instrument is the balafon – a traditional wooden xylophone, sacred to West African culture and his family heritage of the griot. This event sees N'famady with a full band line up as The Successors of the Mandingue – where his arrangements are a fusion of Mandingue African and western European jazz, pop, and funk influences provided by an amazing collective of musicians.

N’famady’s performances create amazing atmospheres and vibrations wherever he goes, and audiences are charmed by his infectious enthusiasm and joy. Instrumentation includes balafon, keyboards, drumkit, djembe, guitars, saxophone, trumpet, and callabash.
