(MALI, 1998)    @

Ancien guitariste du groupe malien mythique des années 1970~80, le "Super Biton de Ségou" (comme Mama Sissoko), Zoumana Diarra est un grand joueur de guitare traditionnelle mandingue et un talentueux multi-instrumentiste peu connu encore du grand public européen.

imageBiography

Zoumana Diarra belongs to the ethnic group Bobo i Mali. His father was a griot (or jali), and Zou llearnt to play n'goni, balafon (xylofon) and guitar as a boy. He started his first band as a twelve year old and found out at an early age that he wanted to become a professional musician. Zoumana Diarra played in Alfa Blondy's reggae band Dafrasta. After having won a music reward in the Ivory Coast at the age of 19, he went back to Mali and continued playing there, with bands like Super Biton and legenary Rail Band. Since Zoumana Diarra was a boy he has been dreaming of going to Holland, as he saw the Dutch milk tins with a nice picture of a cow and a wind mill. Nowadays Zou has realized the dream and is based in Holland, where he plays jazz rock as well as rai and dance music and is involved in a lot of projects. He is increasingly asked for as a jazz musician.

"Ballad of Manding" is Zoumana Diarra's first solo project, and it comes out quite nicely. Diarra plays folk based guitar jazz, and in the same way as Ali Farka Touré's African blues becomes drier and lighter than the American, this guitar jazz is more playful the most music within this genre. Diarra plays with a team of musicians on balafon, piano and talking drum, and the music is pleasant as a summer wind. The Latin influence is unquestionably there, this is different from a lot of other African music. It's varied as well.

Basé actuellement aux Pays-Bas, il a pourtant à son actif une discographie conséquente : voyez la liste de tous les disques auxquels il a collaboré sur son site officiel : http://www.zoudiarra.com

Sur ses albums souvent à dominante instrumentale, on retrouve le charme particulier qui fit le succès du "Super Biton de Ségou" : c'est l'âme même de Ségou et du Mali tout entière qui s'exprime sous les acccents lyriques de la guitare fluide de Zoumana Diarra quand se font entendre les subtiles envolées à la kora ou au balafon de son orchestre dans le respect de la grande musique classique mandigue. Voyez son interprétation magistrale du grand morceau classique malien "Kulandjan", ou guinéen "Kassouma Man", sous le titre "Ta Ma".
