With a superb repertoire of rhythms, Modou fuses together modern and traditional beats, playing a variety of West African instruments ranging from djembe, sabar, calabash and talking drum to his leading instrument, the mesmerizing 22 stringed Kora (West African harp).

Modou's latest album 'Londo', unites world class musicians and blends together an irresistible mix of beautiful harmonies with the gentle yet lively tones of the kora, the vibrant grooves of bass guitar, calabash, djembe and a variety of African percussion instruments. Modou's music draws on inspiration from his homeland, his life experiences and the worlds current issues.

Uniting traditional and modern sounds, this energetic band will leave you invigorated and inspired!
