Tatadingding Jobarteh, the second Kora maestro in The Gambia, will be back on stage on Friday 4 December and Saturday 5 December respectively in Brikama.
Thousands of fans are anticipating this show, after the Brikama-born dingding jalo suffered from a leg infection for nearly two years.
The show, according to Tata’s management, is called “the Welcome Back Show”, to officially inform the fans and the rest of the world that he is back on his two feet, and has re-started his career as a musician.
Tatadingding Jobarteh will stage a series of shows around town, after his official comeback show in Brikama.
Already Sukuta, Bakau, Lamin and other venues are confirmed by his management, as places where he will be performing.
Top Gambian artistes such as Sambou Susso, Benjamin, Badibunka, Bro K, Nova, Lena and others are all going to be part of the welcome back show.
Tatadingding said he wants to use this opportunity to invite all fans of Tata and kora music, in general, to come and witness the official comeback because they will love it.
He said he is training everyday with the Salam Band, and everything is in place to give maximum entertainment to fans.
“On 4 December we will be at Brikama Youth Center, and the following day Saturday December 5 we will be at Brikama Jokor Garden.
“Thanks to everyone who contributed in one way or the other to the official comeback show, to my family, friends and fans; I appreciate the love.
“To all the media houses in The Gambia you have been wonderful.”
