Master drummer, Ibrahimasory Fofana “Soriba”, was raised in the vibrant city of Conakry, Guinea in West Africa. Here, his love for traditional music began at a young age, studying dundun and djembe with acclaimed teachers and becoming musical director of Percussion Wassa in Matam, Conakry. Part of a new generation of Guinea artists, Soriba’s desire is to share the artistic culture of his homeland with community, bringing to life the beauty of traditional songs, rhythms and dances of his beloved country, Guinea.
