Uit Guinee Sekou `Bembeya` Diabate + Djanka Diabate, Dakar Sound 1996.
The dazzling West African guitar virtuoso, Sekou “Diamond Fingers” Diabate, of the legendary Bembeya Jazz, is widely considered to be one of the top few guitarists on the continent of Africa, with an innovative personal style that mixes African and Cuban influences, and even Hawaiian slide guitar.
Beginning in the early 60’s, Diamond Fingers helped to pioneer a movement of modern Manding dance music that moved the musical inspiration and lyrical eloquence of the Manding griot tradition onto the dancefloors and airwaves of young West African capital cities.
During Bembeya’s Jazz’s recently-ended 14 year-hiatus, Diamond Fingers went on to release several acclaimed solo discs featuring his breathtakingly fluid improvisations.
