Bembeya Jazz National - band/ensemble from Guinea.

The year 2002 was a significant one,it marks the first new recording from Guinea's Bembeya Jazz in 14 years. It is also the started an exciting new chapter in the life of one of Africa's greatest dance bands. Bembeya Jazz's signature four-guitar section is crowned by the sterling lead guitar work of Sekou Bembeya Diabaté-a.k.a. “Diamond Fingers.” The band's three singers still deliver timeless vocal harmonies topped by the sweet, high tenor of Salifou Kaba. Two of the three players in Bembeya's punchy brass section-Dory Clement on tenor sax, and chef d'orchestre Mohamed Kaba on trumpet-joined Bembeya back in the 1960s, and their lines still blare with the pride and enthusiasm of Guinea's first decade of independence. Nailing down the band's sensational, hard-swinging rhythm section is drummer Conde Mory Mangala, who has served as Bembeya Jazz's beating heart from the very beginning. The authenticity, spirit, groove and singular creativity of this powerhouse group remains fully intact....
