Product Notes

Born in Conakry, Guinea in West Africa, Mangue Sylla started playing music at the age of 7. Sangban being his first and favorite instrument, he learned from some of the best teachers and performers from Lamine Bayo, Kanda, Lancey to Numudi. He soon became a professional musician and began working at 'Jean Paul 2' Children school for 6 years as a sangban player. Among other great performances they went to Togo for a festival and won the first prize. In 1993 he joined 'Les Merveilles de Guinee', the well known ballet troupe provided opportunities to allow him to travel throughout Africa; studying under the leadership of Kemoko Sano. In 1998 he moved to the US with the same ballet. Since then he has been working with numerous dance companies like Marylin's Bamdulaye (for 1 year) and Nandy's Sankofa Kuumba Cac (summer program for children). Now Mangue Sylla lives in New York City, still an active member of 'Les Merveilles de Guiness', teaching Sangban, Dundun, and Djembe classes, attending workshops, dance conferences, and available for performances.
