"What is implicit in a performance of an African band such as Tata Dindin is the raw, driving passion that knows no “fake;”  no “going through the motions;” no “let’s just get it done and take the money;” or any other kind of trickery! "

1. Tata......  2. The Band...... 3. With Elvis Presley at Farafini nightclub in Kafountine...Casamance...... 4. The Family......Johnny Toubab... and Grandma (aged 93).....  5. The eyes have it! ...... 6. A welcome in Abene...Casamance...... 7. That is some escort!!

This is a remarkable man! Once you have completely understood the circle of music that has travelled across oceans and  around the world,  it becomes apparent that Tata Dindin produces work that is true genius;  that he is  a master of rhythm, phrasing, composition and arrangement, is beyond question! This review... Tata in Casamance    and this...  Art Jobarte      

His approach to music is exactly like that of all the truly great American Jazz Musicians that I have studied for 30 years. To share musical ideas, write songs, play bass for improvisations, and simply live and work with this man is an experience that I shall treasure for the rest of my life.

Listen out for  duets with Hans Ludemann on Grand Piano live at Stadtgarten in Koln Germany. The interplay between Kora and Piano is Jazz at its most exhilarating! To say that these two improvise and play together does not do justice to their technical skill and musicality!

There are many links....but this is recommended... www.coraconnection.com

Currently in Germany until January 2007.............Tata is touring with The Afrika Troupe  www.afrika-afrika.com  

2007

Tata has been home in The Gambia to film a documentary style movie that is following some of the Artists from the Afrika troupe. If you are in Europe I would urge you to check out this amazing performance by 60 superb athletes and musicians. A taste of Africa that you will never forget. Tata is back with us in Africa in about 6 weeks.
