WEAVE is honored to present Adama Bilorou Dembele, world-renowned West African musician and percussionist, composer, arranger, teacher et choreographer. Originally from Burkina Faso, he hails from a lineage of griots, a class of traveling musicians, storytellers and poets who preserve the oral traditions of their culture.

As a multi-instrumentalist, Adama composes and performs an explosive melange of musical genres inspired by his native culture, Bwaba and infused with sounds from Europe and beyond. From street jazz to afro funk to Mandingue melodies and rhythms, his rich grooves explore the fusion between ancestral and contemporary musical expressions. Adamas exploration brings together classical, modern and traditional instruments such as the balafon, djembe, kora, dundun and talking drum, among others.

Adama has had the privilege of playing with Carlos Santana, Manu Dibango, Marcus Miller, Ibraham Malouf, Chieck Tidian Sec, Amadou & Mariam, Salif Keita, Omo Sangare, Alpha Blondi and many more artists from around the world. He performs and leads workshops across Europe, Africa, Asia and North America. His latest album, Ananide, is available at www.adamabilorou.com.

As a modern griot, Adama pays homage to the ancestors for their inspiration and collaboration in his musical composition.
