With balafon — wooden xylophone — in hand, N’famady Kouyaté returns to Green Man with his modern interpretations of West African mandingue songs. The Guinean artist relocated to Cardiff in 2019 and has already played among our mountains as well as supporting Gruff Rhys on tour. Expect to see a djembe, kora, doundoun, or calabash or two alongside brass, drums, and guitars, as he inflects traditional sounds with pop, funk, and jazz.
