BARAKA is a unique combination of musicians from Ghana, Senegal, Dominica, Trinidad and Southern Ireland. Each musician contributes his individual sound and style - Reggae featuring a Kora and Djembe, Township with a Calypso bassline, Hilife with Blues Harmonica, Soca with Balafon and Flute. Baraka features musical collaborations that you are unlikely to hear with any other band. This is not just one person's music translated by backing musicians, as so many "world" music bands seem to be. Baraka is edgy, experimental and innovative without losing sight of the fact that entertainment is the key.
Senegalese multi instrumentalist, singer and songwriter Amadou Diagne weaves his melodies and rhythms with vocals that though soft and warm can deliver great power. He has a creativity and improvisational freedom backed by years of knowledge, skill and understanding of the traditions and styles of West African music.
