“Diakité re-emerges as a humble torchbearer, unsung hero & ambassador for Malian culture” (Toumani Diabaté). Influential guitarist Moussa Diakité was part of the golden era of Malian music in the 70s & ‘80s, performing with some of Africa’s best, including Salif Keita, Oumou Sangare, Toumani Diabaté & the Super Rail Band de Bamako.

Since migrating to Australia, he has stamped his mark on the local scene & together with exciting 5-piece band Wassado fuses traditional West African styles with Cuban, blues & jazz into a unique “Afro-groove”. Performing tracks from their highly acclaimed album Doncomodja & following stand out performances at WOMADelaide, this is a dynamic show that is mesmerizing, and sophisticated “Brilliant, Unique, Inspired (Four Stars!” Tony Hillier, The Australian)
