BIO

 

The big comeback of Toure Kunda, the elephants of African music. 

Toure Kunda are back. Not that they ever really left, but after an international career lasting  forty years, they needed to renew their energy. And what better place to do this than in the heart  of  Casamance,  where  the  incredible  saga  of  the  elephant  family  (Touré Kunda  in soninké) took root ?

With  this  album,  surrounded  by  brilliant likeminded musicians, (Paco Sery, Romain Ghezal, Alune Wade….) and famous friends (Manu Dibango, Nelson Palacio, Chelk Tidiane, Seck, Lokua Kanza…) Toure Kunda conjugate the word humanity in their own way. They who grew up in the Santhiaba district, between Soninkés, Diolas, Mandingues, Portuguese creoles, Peulhs or wolofs), the notion of “universal is local without the walls”, consider that any part of the world can only be a metaphor of the human diaspora. So let’s enjoy their musical thiéboudienne, energetic and tender, a mix of m’balax, casamancais rhythms, funk, pop rock, reggaizing spices, like an invitation to dance, to dream and to hope.
