Mamadou Koïta, a talented artist from Burkina Faso, is about to make a splash on the international music scene with his brand new album entitled “Terry”. Born and raised in the bustling streets of Ouagadougou, Mamadou has always been drawn to the music and captivating rhythms of his native country. From an early age, Mamadou showed a marked interest in traditional Burkinabé music. He would spend hours listening to local griots tell fascinating stories through their songs and haunting melodies. Inspired by these stories, Mamadou began playing various traditional instruments such as the balafon, djembe, n’goni, tama, etc. thus developing his own unique style. However, Mamadou was not content to stay within the confines of traditional music. He was eager to discover new musical horizons and fuse traditional sounds with modern influences. So he began to explore other musical genres such as jazz, reggae and hip-hop, creating a captivating mix of African and Western sounds in Afro-fusion! After years of hard work and perfecting his art, Mamadou is ready to present his debut album, “Terry”. This album is a true ode to his African roots, but also a celebration of the cultural and musical diversity that characterizes Burkina Faso. The 12 songs on “Terry” are a musical journey through the vibrant landscapes of West Africa, with catchy rhythms and poetic lyrics that tell stories of life, love and resilience. Mamadou has worked with talented musicians from different backgrounds to create a unique and innovative sound that transcends borders. The launch of the album “Terry” will take place on Friday, November 10, 2023 at Balattou, an emblematic concert hall in Montreal. It will be a memorable evening where Mamadou Koïta and his group Balafola will ignite the stage with their contagious energy and their passion for music! Don’t miss this opportunity to discover the captivating musical universe of Mamadou Koïta and let yourself be carried away by the captivating rhythms of his album “Terry”. Get ready to dance, sing and let yourself be transported on an unforgettable musical journey.
