Saturday Night Dance: Tani Diakite & the Afrofunkstars
Tani Diakite has been playing Malian-style blues around Madison for years. While the music has always been anchored in Diakite’s vocals andTaniCU4Ww the mandolin-like ring of his kamale n’goni, a West African stringed instrument, the Afrofunkstars’ first album, Dalonkan, is rooted in the ensemble possibilities of this complex genre.
Diakite’s interplay with Peter Baggenstoss’ keyboards and Matt Manske’s guitar ranges from loose and conversational on opening track “Naremakan Mandinka” to nimble and prickly on “Nungulunba.” The album draws just as much strength from the band’s traditional hand percussion, which adapts as well to the swaying subtlety of “Yelema (Change)” as it does to the speed and syncopation of “Nungulunba.” The group’s horn section is equally flexible, knowing when to apply a stately burst of brass and when to hang back. Add the ever-reliable grounding of bass player Nick Moran, and Dalonkan becomes a powerful, proud display of a big group and its even bigger capabilities.
