Gigs & Events Featuring Super Mande Percussion

In the Mande culture, the djembe drum is a significant instrument of celebration.  The djembe drum is heard in most celebrations of one's life (weddings, baptisms, harvests, circumcisions, parties, welcomings, etc.), that is why it carries on its tradition throughout time, with a rhythmical representation of each happening in the cultural life of the present world.  Mady cannot emphasise enough the meaning of the djembe drum as an instrument and as a word, bringing people together to unite in friendship.

In Australia, Mady has continued the Mande traditions with his band Super Mande Percussion entertaining many music enthusiasts in pubs, clubs and open air events. 

Mady is now one of Australia's finest exponents of West African music and culture.

Super Mande Percussion is available to offer performances at festivals, weddings, baptisms, parties and other social functions, celebrations and special social events.  It is the music of the earth.  Come and celebrate with us in the infectious rhythms of Mande or West African music.
