a great master of the djembe from the rich,cultured soil of Faranah/Guinea:
Fadouba was born in 1936 in Sankaran at Koumandi Barnatou in the subprefecture of Bendou Cérékor,
40 km from Faranah. From an early age, his relatives went to consult a sorcerer,
who learned that Fadouba would be a great drummer who would travel around the world.
His father Youssouf Oulare was a drummer so Fadouba learned from him and accompanied him
at festivals. At the age of 15, Fadouba was the best drummer around and his reputation grew rapidly.....
Fadouba died on 26 January 2010. He was one of the grand masters in the true Malinke tradition of the djembe as well as the ballets. He had a virtuosity and a series of his own created strokes that added colour to his playing, yet his playing embodied the old world of djembe. His presence commanded respect and admiration. His loss was strongly felt but he left an indelible mark on his peers and on all his students and fans around the world.
a laser role for Fadouba Oularé,but I urge you to watch next video anyway :
