Moussa Diakite and Wassado

Saturday 11 May 2019

Influential guitarist Moussa Diakité was part of the golden era of Malian music in the 1970s and 1980s, performing with some of Africa’s best, including Salif Keita, Oumou Sangare, Toumani Diabaté and the Super Rail Band de Bamako. Since migrating to Australia, he has stamped his mark on the local scene and together with exciting five piece band Wassado fuses traditional West African styles with Cuban, blues and jazz into a unique Afro-groove.

Performing tracks from their highly acclaimed album Doncomodja and following stand out performances at recent Mullum Music Festival, and WOMADelaide, this is a dynamic show that is mesmerising, sophisticated, irresistible on the dance floor and not to be missed.
