ABOUT

N’famady Kouyaté

THURSDAY 14 NOVEMBER - 8:00 PM



You could tell from N’famady’s incredible performance, and the response to it, that he really is an emerging talent who deserves to be seen and heard by a much bigger audience.

Emily Eavis, Glastonbury Festival Organiser (NME)

The energetic master musician from Guinea brings his joyful fusion of Mandingue African, western jazz, pop, indie, and funk.

Since N’famady Kouyaté relocated to Wales from Guinea in 2019, he has been building an enthusiastic UK audience. His primary instrument is the balafon – a traditional wooden xylophone. The balafon is sacred to West African culture and his family heritage of the griot/djeli. N’famady’s music is a blend of his West African heritage and western musical influences such as Super Furry Animals, The Flaming Lips and 9Bach. His performances are vibrant and joyous, fuelled by his charisma and charm onstage. He wields balafon and guitar throughout the show with masterful ease.

Since coming to the UK, N’famady has been playing and touring extensively. His highlights have been festival shows at The Great Escape, Celtic Connections, SXSW, Latitude main stage and many more. Last year, he won the 2023 Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition, further cementing a bright future as a rising star. N’famady is accompanied by his excellent band – don’t miss the chance to catch them live!
