Marafani World Beat

Marafani World Beat (formerly known as Kikeyambay Electric) is a Victoria, British Columbia-based musical project led by Guinean percussionist and vocalist Alseny Michel Diallo, and often joined by world-renowned dancer and singer N'Nato Camara.

Diallo's passion for and knowledge of both traditional and modern Guinean music has inspired a group of Victoria musicians to form a modern and dynamic Afro-fusion electric band.

Marafani's World Beat's exciting contemporary fusion of traditional West African, reggae, and world beat music always gets people on the dance floor! Marafani has headlined at Victoria's Inner Harbour Canada Day 2014 celebration, the Seattle World Rhythm Festival, Edge of the World Music Festival in Haida Gwaii, and the Diversity Festival on Texada Island, as well as many other festivals and venues.
