Moussa Diallo Trio (Dānija)
Moussa Diallo Trio mūzikā saplūst rietumu un afrikāņu mūzikas dvēsele. Tā ietver rock, funk, soul un tradicionālās Āfrikas mūzikas neapstrādāto enerģiju, kuru vada viens no Dānijas ietekmīgākajiem basģitāras spēlētājiem, komponists, bērnu mūziklu autors – Moussa Diallo.
Moussa Diallo Trio uzstājas visā Eiropā ar mūziku, kas skaidri norāda uz Diallo afrikāņu mantojumu. Moussa Diallo formējumi izmanto arī Āfrikas un Eiropas akustiskos instrumentus, grupa muzikāli atspoguļo kosmopolītisko mūsdienu realitāti un izaicinājumu mūzikas kultūras tradīcijās, tādējādi radot jaunas skaņu kompozīcijas. Pasaules klases mūziķis labprāt brauc tūrēs pa Eiropas un Āfrikas valstīm, ir uzstājies Indijā, Indonēzijā un citur.
Moussa Diallo spēlē basģitāru un dzied, ar viņu kopā būs leģendārais ilgtermiņa mūzikas partneris – ģitārists Mikkel Nordsø. Pats Moussa par Mikkel saka: „ameizing guitarplayer” un kā trešais Latvijas/Madonas tūrē muzicēs bundzinieks un perkusionists Klaus Menzer. Šo trio varēsim baudīt pateicoties Dānijas Kultūras institūta atbalstam.

In 1974, when fusion between western and traditional African music was still just a wish to be fulfilled, a young man from Mali found himself in Copenhagen with an electric bass. Moussa Diallo had left his native country to seek out possibilities in the far north. On his arrival in Denmark this young bass player immediately captured the attention of the established Danish rock scene with his fierce, grooving and always convincing approach to his instrument. Throughout the 1970s and the 1980s Moussa Diallo set fire to prominent Danish rock/fusion bands like Sneakers, Skunk Funk, Savage Rose and many others and he was the leading rhythmical force when famed singer Anne Linnet formed her revolutionary band Marquis de Sade in 1983. Moussa Diallo has also been an indispensable member of renowned Danish singer/composer Hanne Boel’s group on stage as well as in the studio from 1992 to 2006. During recent years Moussa Diallo has concentrated more on performing and recording his own compositions. He has brought together some of the very best West African artists currently living in Denmark with some of the country’s top musicians forming ‘The Kékéliba Project’. This diverse constellation musically reflects the cosmopolitan reality of today and challenges cultural traditions in music by creating a significant new sound.
