Adama Keïta is the 72nd generation of kora players in his family. Adama’s grandfather was the legendary Sidiki Diabate senior and his uncle is the famous Toumani Diabate. When we met in Brussels, Adama explained to me that he wants to integrate more of chord playing to his classical style. To this aim he studied piano and base guitar at the conservatorium of Aalborg, Denmark. Adama Keïta is a member of Oumar Konta’s group Malikan and I’m sure he has a great future, inshallah!
