Fodé Camara began his drum training at the age of five under Master Drummer Fatouabou Camara in Guinea, West Africa.
In 1998 an international search for the world’s best West African musicians was conducted by Mamadou Mansour, Director of Les Ballets d’Afrique Noire, to take part in a production entitled Mandinka Epic. Fode was chosen as the lead Djembe player in the internationally celebrated production, which enjoyed a 32-city world tour.
