Senegalese musician Youssou N'Dour paid tribute, calling Kanté "a baobab of African culture"

As a solo artist, he released 13 studio albums. The last, N'Diarabi, was released in 2017. In 2014, he recorded Africa Stop Ebola alongside artists including Amadou & Mariam, Salif Keïta and Oumou Sangaré. It sold 250,000 copies, raising money for Médicins Sans Frontières.

Speaking to the Guardian in 2004, he said he would like to be remembered "as a man of culture, as a citizen of the world who delivers his messages in music, and as a tireless traveller looking to meet and know the people of this world".

Mory Kanté: African music star dies aged 70

Born in a famous family of "griots" - West African musicians and storytellers - he had been nicknamed "the electronic griot", and was known as a distinguished player of kora - a West African harp.

His song Yéké Yéké became a huge hit in the late 1980s and was widely remixed.

The president of Guinea, Alpha Condé, said on Twitter that African culture was in mourning. He thanked Kanté, saying his career had been "exceptional".

Sein eingängiger Song machte den Musiker aus Afrika auf einen Schlag weltbekannt. Er verband traditionelle Klänge seiner Heimat mit westlichem Pop.

Zurück zum Sound der Heimat

Wie die meisten afrikanischen Musiker, die mit europäisch beeinflussten Stücken Erfolg im Westen hatten - etwa sein alter Bandkollege Salif Keita - kehrten sie mit der Zeit zu einem Sound zurück, in dem die traditionellen, akustischen Instrumente ihrer Heimat eine weit grössere Rolle hatten.
