Afrodelic is the new project of guitarist and producer Victor Diawara who has recently
released his debut album Dusunkun Hakili (The memory of the heart) in June 2022. An
intriguing mix of African music and electronic rhythms. Most songs were recorded in
Bamako (Mali) with local musicians and singers. Victor later added electronic sounds
and beats in his studio in Vilnius (Lithuania).
The collection of songs is a tribute to Diawara’s father: well-known and respected
Malian writer and poet Gaoussou Diawara who passed away in 2018.
Born in Lithuania, raised in Mali, Victor lived in Germany and Ireland before
permanently moving to back to his mother’s home country Lithuania in 1997. Here, he
formed Skamp – a band which became wildly popular in Lithuania at the end of the
“noughties”. Skamp have released 10 albums, performed around Europe, won a
number of music awards and were nominated for MTV European Music Award (twice).
