"Born in 1964, Sékouba 'Bambino' Diabaté is a leading light of Guinean music. Diabaté won the Best Guinean Singer Award in 1979 and was asked to join Bembeya Jazz. The nickname 'Bambino' came from his need to distinguish himself from Sékou Bembeya Diabaté, the group's guitar virtuoso. After embarking on a solo career, Diabaté had his first major success with his 1992 album Le Destin. With Innovation, Diabaté's life experiences and wide ranging influences come together in a dance-friendly album that never forsakes his roots."
