From the rhythmic beats of the drums and balafon to the soul-stirring melodies of the kora, here's some video footage from Fawkner Festa that showcases the beauty and cultural significance of our West African musical tradition.

Whether you are a seasoned fan of Mande music or a newcomer looking to explore new sounds, we invite you to sit back, relax, and let the captivating sounds of Mande music transport you to a world of cultural and musical richness.


What is Mande Music?

Mande music originates from the Mande people of West Africa and is deeply rooted in their history, beliefs, and customs. It is characterised by intricate rhythms, soulful melodies, and powerful vocals that transport listeners to another world.


Why is Mande Music Special?

Mande music is not just about entertainment; it is a form of storytelling that conveys the struggles, triumphs, and emotions of the Mande people. Each note and lyric carries a profound meaning, making it a truly unique and powerful art form.
