Amadou Diagne is a singer and multi-instrumentalist who has the traditions of West Africa at his fingertips. Originally from Dakar, Senegal, Amadou comes from a long family line of West African Griot percussionists and praise singers. As a young man, Amadou’s obvious musical talent won him a place as a professional full-time member of L’Orchestra National du Senegal. He performed with some of the top West African stars at festivals, cultural events, concerts and on television. He became an in-demand session musician on the vibrant Dakar music scene.
