Casamance’s Griot

Native to Bantandjam, in Senegal’s Kolda region, Lamine Kouyaté is born into a family of musicians. At the early age of seven, as it is traditionally practiced in great African musician families, Lamine Kouyaté started learning his first kora tunes with his father, Malam Kouyaté, one of the greatest figures of Mandinka music in ancient Mali Empire.
