 TRANSCENDING LINES BETWEEN ANCIENT AFRICA AND THE NEW WORLD DIASPORA.

Lamine's work is a unique synthesis of contemporary and traditional music, steeped in the varied cultural musical legacies that have informed his approach as a songwriter and performer. In his artistic practice, he pushes boundaries to experiment with fusing the styles of West African, western classical and jazz, drawing on ancient African musicalconcepts that talk to people about the present human condition and the social function of the arts to foster connection and new community consciousness.
