Ahmed Ag Kaedy

“Many nomadic Tuareg artists channel and preserve the vibrancy of life that was once the everyday in Mali. Ahmed Ag Kaedy initially set out to do the same, but instead his haunting eight-track LP ‘Akaline Kidal’ introspectively captures the more forlorn current state of affairs in the Kidal region. The stripped-down nature of Ag Kaedy’s music evokes the bare remnants left of the homeland he is banished from, but hope still shimmers brightly within his guitar playing: like that first glint of sunlight rising over the murky sand-covered hills.”

Bubacar Djabaté

Living in Lisbon since 2005, Bubacar Djabaté brings the legacy of traditional Mandinga music alive in his voice and the sounds of his instrument, both through a time-honoured repertoire and in his own strongly mesmerising songs that capture the heritage of Guinean culture and its various musical influences.
