Kadialy's captivating kora skills originate from his long family history of Kouyate griots. Embracing the art of traditional storytelling, via the 21-stringed kora, he draws on his past heritage for inspiration while creating his own uplifting compositions. In the Senegalese society, 'aado' stands for 'moral customs and values'. Kadialy's enchanting songs touch on these principles and reflect on the Mandinka culture.
