|Omar Pene & le Super Diamono|
Existing for more than 30 years now, Super Diamono has always addressed issues concerning the youth in their lyrics. This accounts for the hugh popularity among younger generations of Senegalese.
Singer and composer Omar Pene created the band with Ismael Lô and they started to play traditional music. After some years, they introduced electric guitars and joined the new mbalax style en vogue in Dakar since the end of the 1970s. Yet, Super Diamono have a distinct style easily recognizable.
In the course of years, several musicians left the band for solo careers or to create off-shoots such as Lemzo Diamono, but they continue to show both talent and craftmanship.
Formed: in 1975 by Omar Pene in Dakar
