CD Sambla Fadenya front cover


These are just preview samples. You need a valid account and be logged in to hear the full tracks.


This is the first of three CDs intended to present the musical treasury of the Sambla-, Tusia- and Siamou-Diabates.

The soloist Sadama Diabate, now the head of the Sambla-Diabates, is not only a brilliant interpreter of the tradition but also a gifted composer. Some of his compositions are so popular that many believe they belong to the core of the Sambla-tradition.

Sabwe Diabate plays the first accompaniment in the bass, Sadama's son Diaka plays the second accompaniment and GoGardi Traore plays the dundun.
