West-African Ensemble is a weekly course that offers a chance to work on pieces drawn from the rich and varied repertoire of West-African traditions.
Mady Kouyaté is from Guinea-Conakry. He is the grandson of Konkoba, and has always been surrounded by the musical traditions of the Mandinka people. Like his cousin N’Faly Kouyaté, he studied the balafon, tama and guitar. Mady performed on stage with the mythical band Bembeya Jazz, as well as excellent contemporary groups such as Les Amazaones de Guinée, Malick Pathé Sow & Maoba or N’Faly Kouyaté & Dunyakan.
Depending the availability of the students, the teacher will establish a schedule of one hour collective balafon class between 20h and 21h30 on Tuesdays.
Come along to a free trial lesson on 19 September 2017 to meet the tutors and check out whether this ensemble is definitely for you.
If required, the teacher can make changes to the calendar, with the agreement ofthe students.
