Gifted guitarist, percussionist and balafón (African xylophone) player Kimi Djabaté is a master of African music hailing from the West African country of Guinea-Bissau.

With Djabaté’s exceptional upcoming album Dindin, the multitalented musician carries on the customs of his griot heritage, singing entrancingly about the complexity of life in modern Africa for a broad, international audience. Blending traditional Afro-Portuguese rhythms with Afrobeat grooves, electric desert blues and hints of Afro-Latin swing, Djabaté weaves a unique tapestry of smooth and intricate sounds.
