Delivering an irrepressible rhythmical energy and a breathtakingly dynamic stage show,  Afro Mandinko has steadily built a reputation as one of Australia’s premier African dance bands. Drawing on influences from across West Africa, from coastal Gambian highlife to deep Saharan Desert Blues, Afro Mandinko fuses the centuries old traditions of West Africa with contemporary styles, creating a vibrant blend of irresistible dance music. With elements of afrobeat, funk, latin, reggae, dance-hall and jazz it’s a modern mix, underpinned by the deep roots of the traditional rhythms and melodies of their Mandinko heritage.
