Les Ambassadeurs

From 1970 to 1985, the long-lasting Malian band “Les Ambassadeurs” wrote and re-wrote the rulebook for the “Manding” pop sound that drove the world music growth of the 1980s and 1990s.

Authentic members Salif Keita, Cheick Tidiane Seck, and Amadou Bagayoko (of Amadou & Mariam) reunite right here to revisit their catalogue – a set of songs cast from the desires and tensions of post-Independence West Africa: socialism, pan-Africanism, black pleasure, “authenticité”, salsa, jazz, soul, rock ’n’ roll, and the traditional artwork of the griots.
