he balafon (xylophone) has electrified popular music in West Africa since the court of Emperor Sundiata Keita back in 1235. With his band Kakande, Famoro Dioubate updates this tradition with an explosive new groove. Lush vocals, sinewy koras, flutes, and cellos meet the virtuosic balafon of this master griot from Guinea.
