Mory Kanté

Available in French only

Mory Kanté, héritier d'une grande famille de Griots en Guinée, arrive à Paris en 1984, poussé par l'envie de topcinquantiser l'essence de la musique mandingue. Jouant d'une vingtaine d'instruments dont la cora, cousine africaine (éloignée, soit) de la harpe (nantie, au demeurant, de vingt et une cordes aux sonorités rieuses), l'ex-guitariste du Rail Band, l'orchestre pittoresque du Buffet de la gare de Bamako, perpétue depuis l'histoire de son peuple dans ses chansons. Sa version house du chant folklorique Yé ké yé ké lui aura finalement livré non seulement le succès local, mais aussi le succès international en 1988, dominant les palmarès de sept pays et déchaînant les ventes de plus d'un million de copies. En cherchant l'harmonie entre la tradition et la modernité, en trouvant l'équilibre entre la cora et les claviers sur les planchers de danse du monde entier, Mory Kanté a su élever un pont central entre les arts africains et occidentaux qui en a fait le Guinéen le plus célèbre de son pays.
