Bio:
Bolokada Conde is true Master Djembefola (master drummer), expert of Malinke Rhythms and one of world’s best djembe player.

Bolokada was a young musical prodigy who became a sensation in the Sankaran region of Guinea, West Africa. As a master folklorist, he became the premier djembe player in all the major village celebrations in the region for many years.

Bolokada joined the world famous Les Percussion du Guinee to replace the legendary Nomoudy Keita as their lead drummer. He traveled and performed in major performance venues all over the world since 1996 and was featured in the IMAX movie PULSE: a Stomp Odyssey.

Since 2004, he has been performing and teaching in the United States. He is the musical director and lead soloist of Ballet Waraba in North Carolina, Ballet Wassa-Wassa in Santa Cruz, California and Les Percussion Malinke in the San Francisco Bay Area. He has conducted percussion workshop all over the US and Europe.

He has released two musical cd's Morowaya and Sankaran and the subject of an upcoming documentary "Bolokada Conde- Malinke Village Djembefola”

Mamady Keita, the best known djembe player in the world, calls Bolokada “A brilliant and entertaining performer, a patient and precise teacher, and as one of the few masters of his instrument. Few others are able to captivate his audience as he does, an even fewer are able to clearly and concisely teach this music."

He was awarded immigrant status as an alien with extraordinary ability in the arts in 2007.
