Moussa Diakite & Wassado
(West Africa)

OPENING NIGHT GALA, FRIDAY, SATURDAY & SUNDAY

Influential guitarist Moussa Diakité was part of the golden era of Malian music in the 1970s and ‘80s, performing with some of Africa’s best, including Salif Keita, Oumou Sangare, Toumani Diabaté and the Super Rail Band de Bamako. Since migrating to Australia, he has stamped his mark on the local scene and together with exciting five piece band Wassado fuses traditional West African styles with Cuban, blues and jazz into a unique “Afro-groove”.

Performing tracks from their highly acclaimed album Doncomodja and following stand out performances at last year’s Mullum Music Festival and this year’s WOMADelaide, this is a dynamic show that is mesmerizing, sophisticated, irresistible on the dance floor and not to be missed.
