Kasse Mady Diabate
Kasse Mady Diabate comes from a family of singers. The first person to have this name was his grandfather who had such a beautiful voice that he moved people to tears. Kasse means ‘to weep’. Kasse Mady II was given this nickname by his family when he started to sing. Through the years Kasse Mady has collaborated with many artists and has developed the mandenke songs from his native village Kela to fulfilment. At the age of 65 Kasse Mady Diabate is better than ever!
