Amadou Ourybay

Music is the story of us immigrants. We escape from our countries, some from wars, some from other problems. I want to be a truck driver. I like driving.

Amadou Ourybay, from Guinea Conakry, has a sweet smile and a gentle manner, and is a constant presence in our workshops. On occasion, he’ll suddenly throw himself in, and find himself singing, rapping and dancing – only to return, equally suddenly, to the usual Amadou.
