Mamadou Diop and MAMADOU BAND are humbled and honored to have won the 2011 Boston Music Award for International Artist of the Year.This group brings MAMADOU friends and fans together at live performance venues. Led by Senegalese native Mamadou Diop, MAMADOU is an eclectic group of musicians who have truly formed a guitar and drum led sound that is all their own (enough to win the 2011 Boston Music Award as International Artist of the Year). The music they produce is made for dance, and drumming and percussion are integrated into their live shows, getting the audience to move their feet to the beat! The best way to appreciate MAMADOU is to experience their performance LIVE. With lyrics sung in several languages, the positive messages of the ensemble are conveyed through the universal language of music. If you like to dance, enjoy quality live music, or are just looking for something different, then you'll want to join this group.
