He spent several years traveling throughout the world with Les Merveilles De Guinee. In 1998, Mamady was invited to come to the United States to teach and perform. A resident of the USA for the past ten years, Mamady teaches workshops, clinics, and master classes, as well as performs as a guest artist, throughout the country. He lives as well as teaches in New York City.
Born in Conakry, Guinea West Africa, Mangue Sylla started playing music at the age of 7. In 1993 Mangue joined the well known ballet troupe: "Les Merveilles de Guinee". This provided him the opportunity to travel throughout Africa and study under the leadership of Kemoko Sano. In 1998 Mangue moved to the US with the same ballet. Since then, while still an active member of "Les Merveilles de Guineee", he has been working with numerous groups including: Alvin Ailey, Magbana Drum and Dance, Drum Cafe, Marylin's Bamdulaye, and Nandy's Sankofa Kuumba Cac (summer program for children).
