Abdoulaye Diabaté From Wikipedia Abdoulaye Diabaté is a famous singer and guitarist who was born to Griot family in Kela, Mali in 1956. He has at least twenty years of experience in contemporary and popular music. Life Abdoulaye Diabaté was raised in the Mande tradition to a djali family (traditional musicians and story tellers). His brother Kasse Mady has achieved worldwide fame and his sister Mama Diabate is a great star in Guinea. At age 18, having developed into a formidable singer and guitarist he left his village.[1] He joined Tenetemba Jazz in Bemako, the capital of Mali.[1] In 1975, he moved to Abidjan in Ivory Coast where he formed his own band called Super Mande. Super Mande became one of the foremost ensembles in the capital performing all over the country.

At times, some now most famous West African stars such as Salif Keita, Mory Kante and Ousmane Kouyate joined the group for performances. The career of Super Mande culminated with the release of their album "Wahabiadashi" which was eventually banned from airplay because the title track criticized hypocritical Marabouts (religious leaders). In the early nineties, Diabate was recruited as a star singer in the world renowned "Ballet Koteba" led by Souleymane Koli to replace Sekou Camara "Cobra" after his death; and also as rhtyhm-guitarist with the "Go de Koteba" the world famous women group. He toured the world with these ensemble for several years.

In 1996, he relocated in New York City. He has since taken part in many cultural events as leader of the re-formed Super Mande group and with many collaborations with artists such as jazzman Don Byron, Peter Apfelbaum, Sean Noonan, and the groups Source and Fula Flute Ensemble. Religious interest Abdoulaye Diabate is a devout Muslim. Any reference to his being involved with the Raelian movement are erroneous.
