'Nemo' a new album from Kadialy Kouyate

Nemo is the brand new album from West African Kora play Kadialy Kouyate.

Kadialy Kouyate is a musician, a singer songwriter inspired by the West African Griot repertoire. Born into the great line of Kouyate Griot, in Southern Senegal, Kadialy’s mesmerising kora playing and singing style have been appreciated in many prestigious venues as both a soloist and in different ensembles.

His instrument, the Kora, is a traditional African harp described by Wikipedia as a "double-bridge-harp-lute". Kadialy's skilful and emotional playing of the kora produces some peaceful ethereal and yet highly melodic rhythms which I truly love.

'Nemo' is the brand new album from West African Kora playing Kadialy Kouyate. The title NEMO, meaning blessings, is the human values that bring prosperity to any country or place.

All songs are written & performed by Kadialy Kouyate and produced by Jim Palmer an English song writer, producer and multi-instrumentalist based in Buckinghamshire UK
