Bamba Wassoulou Groove
is a group created in 2012 by
Super Djata Band
, seeking a revival of the music of this mythic band of the 1970s and early 1980s.
Bamba, a conga player himself, gathered young musicians around him, and asked Moussa Diabaté
drummer Maguett Diop
, both from Super Rail Band
, to join.
In 2015, their debut album « Farima »
has been released, with some new compositions, and
a selection of great songs made famous by Zani Diabaté's Super Djata Band
, for instance
the driving « Siguigniossonfo »
« Batjila »
. The song « Yacouba »
during their concerts performed with all band members on their knees as a sign of respect for the former Super Djata icons,
such as Zani, Flani Sangaré and Alou Fané who all are not among us anymore.
Singer Ousmane Diakité
is doing a good job interpreting the songs that were sung by
Daouda 'Flani' Sangaré
and guitarist Bayni Diabaté
is convincingly playing the dazzling line of the former master Zani Diabaté
. Bamba Wassoulou Groove
toured in Europe in 2015, and again in spring and summer 2016.
Bamba Dembelé passed away late 2018.
