Manden Express is an international group of Artists fusing traditional and contemporary styles of West African music from the Mande Empire of what is now known as Mali. Inspired by village, Wassalou (Oumou Sangare) styles and the explosion of new musical influences that merged with African music in the 1960′s it blends Kamele n’goni harp, djembe, and African bass drums (dunun) with Electric bass and guitar to produce stomping grooves and hypnotic time patterns.
This new project brings together a wealth of knowledge and experience of African music with styles ranging from flamenco to Santana.
The band have made recent appearances at Love live music 2013, Body and Soul Festival and the Drogheda Samba Festival.
