Adama Bilorou Dembele is a world-renowned West African musician and percussionist, composer, arranger, teacher and choreographer. Originally from Burkina Faso, he hails from a lineage of griots, a class of traveling musicians, storytellers and poets who preserve the oral traditions of their culture.

As a multi-instrumentalist, Adama composes and performs an explosive melange of musical genres inspired by his native culture, Bwaba, and infused with sounds from Europe and beyond. From street jazz to afro funk to Mandingue melodies and rhythms, his rich grooves explore the fusion between ancestral and contemporary musical expressions. Adamaʻs exploration brings together classical, modern and traditional instruments such as the balafon, djembe, kora, dundun and talking drum, among others.
