Ousmane Kouyaté is a composer, arranger and musician (balafon and guitar player) born in 1950 in Dabola (Guinea Conakry).
He released 5 albums, and played with many great African musicians, such as Salif Keïta, Kante Manfila, Cheikh Tidiane Seck or Mory Kante (he played the guitar on the African hit “Mandjou” with the Malian band “Les Ambassadeurs”) and played in the very well known “Les Ambassadeurs Internationaux” among with Salif Keïta (Mali) and Kante Manfila (Guinea Conakry).
The track I wanted to present you today, “Kefimba”, is a storming long afro funk track with crazy synth and furious guitar parts taken from the second album of Ousmane Kouyaté, recorded in 1983 in Mali with Les Ambassadeurs Internationaux.
