Mamadou Konte remembered in Marseilles and Paris

Toko BlazeAs mentioned below, the death of Mamadou Konte was a great loss to African music (and indeed the US and European music fans that enjoyed the acts he promoted). The company he created, Africa Fête, is however continuing. On September 9 and 15 next, they are putting together a special homage to Konte with a selection of acts based in the south of France: these include Toko Blaze (photo right), Oumar Kouyaté, Sayon Bama Camara, Afro Latin Jazz Concept and others.

The Paris and Marseilles events are also to support Africa Fête, who were recently the victims of a burglary. For details, visit Africa Fê To check Toko Blaze’s sweet ragga/dancehall in French, click here.
