MAMADOU is a world-class ensemble showcasing the original musical works of Senegalese luminary Mamadou Diop.

Having shared the stage and collaborated with countless African greats including Baaba Maal, Mamadou Jimi Mbaye and Mbaye Dieye Faye in the Madison Band (formerly of Youssou Ndour), Thione Seck, Nicolas Menheim and Papa Seck in the band Africando, the Grand Soda Mama, and many others, Mamadou introduced his signature rhythm guitar sound around the world.

Mamadou Diop has had opportunities to connect with influential giants including James Brown, the Jackson Five with Michael Jackson, Nelson Mandela – all personal inspirations for his art.

Now, fronting his own award-winning band, he resides in the USA composing and performing new and amazing songs about peace, love, hope, family and friendship, bringing a positive vibe to our world.

Today, Mamadou Diop is one of the most respected rhythm guitarists from his country and an accomplished sabar (Senegalese hand and stick) and djembe drummer. He holds weekly African drum classes in Newburyport Sundays 6-7pm at the Dance Place .

(African Development through Drum and Dance), a local non-profit organization that supports people in need locally in the Boston area and overseas in West Africa. Through his efforts, Mamadou has been recognized by the Art of Living Foundation and by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. His band supports his efforts, with several band members being part of A3D.
