About the Album

Message from Mosi Conde:

Everybody in my family is a griot meaning we play music, educate and mediate. My mother's family is Diabaté, one of Africa's foremost griot families. I started playing Kora and percussion at 6, training in my family compound in Conakry (Guinea) surrounded by musicians, living and learning the role of jali (oral historian).

A very high level of skill is demanded of you as a griot & I was 15 by the time I was able to play with my family band - Messenger of Sakaran.

We travelled all over Guinea with invitations to play for all sorts of functions, festivals and ceremonies. Later I moved to the Ivory Coast & joined a band called Titimba Jazz. We travelled to Liberia & Ghana.

The music we played was varied & included reggae and traditional African folk styles, so it wasn't strictly speaking a 'jazz' band.

Now I'm here in London...
