Mory Kante

at den Atelier Doors: 7:00 pm


“Mory Kante was able to find an ideal balance in crossover music and the western public was ready to welcome these sounds. Mory Kante draws mainly on funky music for inspiration, mixing it with the sounds of Africa and switching between traditional and modern musical instruments. ”Yeke Yeke” became a worldwide no. 1 hit. The song’s dazzling success took everyone by surprise and succeeded in giving African music the place it rightfully deserves. Mory Kante is still going strong. His kind of world music is very infectious stuff indeed! In 2000, Leonardo Di Caprio called upon Mory Kante for the soundtrack of his film “”The Beach””. Mory Kante performs on throughout the world. Age does not wither the electric griot…
