A veteran of the great orchestras of the golden age of Guinean dance bands (Kélétigui et ses Tambourini, Balla et ses Balladin, Bembeya Jazz), Mamady is a living library of musical science inherited from his griot ancestors and a half-century of experience as an accomplished arranger, band leader, accompanist and soloist in Guinea.
