About Celebrating Sanctuary: Amadou Diagne

Moving into 2022 Celebrating Sanctuary continue their series of free lunchtime events in partnership with B:Music (Symphony Hall). As part of the celebrations for their 20th Anniversary Programme CSB will be presenting some amazing World Music artists from across the country, with music originating from around the world.

The 2022 series starts with Senegalese musician Amadou Diagne, who is descended from a Griot line of percussionists and singers. His talent as a percussionist led him to becoming a member of l’Orchestre National du Senegal, also performing with some of West Africa's top artists. Since moving to the UK Amadou has forged his own musical identity as a singer, songwriter, and multi instrumentalist drawing on the traditional music and rhythms of West Africa. He writes and performs in Wolof, French and English, and as a guitarist has developed a unique and intricate style which draws on his skills as a percussionist. Amadou has a love of improvisation and an eclectic musical inspiration, delighting in the rhythmic possibilities within the melodies he composes. His music has attracted global airplay and he has recorded and released several albums of his music.

Honey-smoked vocals …Plaintive, acoustic and brimming with an unhurried assurance.
