Naby Camara

Naby comes from a lineage of persons known in West Africa as griots

(pronounced gree’-oh.)

Besides being superlative musicians,

griots are verbal artisans, oral historians,

and the guardians of centuries-old traditions.

Naby is a griot, as are his brothers, their father before them,

his father before him, and so on.

Thus, in addition to being trained as a master musician,

Naby also knows the stories and histories of his people.

He is a walking treasure of talent,

but of knowledge as well…
