The band is fronted by the charismatic Lamine Sonko, one of Australia’s most accomplished African artists.
Praised for his compelling melodies and distinct percussive blend of the traditional and contemporary, Lamine is modernising West African music while maintaining the essence of ancient sounds and stories.
Through The African Intelligence, Lamine brings together the different styles of afro-beat, afro-classical soul, reggae and funk.
This 10 piece ensemble has become firm favourites in festival line-ups, including their recent WOMADelaide appearance with reviews describing their show as 'brimming with optimism and conviction in a circus of song, dance and social comment'.
