    Alpha Blondy de son vrai nom Seydou Koné, né à Dimbokro le 1er janvier 1953, est un chanteur de reggae ivoirien.

    Avec Youssou N'Dour, il est sans doute la star internationale la plus populaire de la musique afro/reggae depuis la mort de Bob Marley auquel on le compare souvent, notamment pour son charisme et son engagement. Il chante aussi bien en français, en dioula (langue vehiculaire de l'Afrique de l'Ouest), qu'en anglais. C'est un artiste de scène qui se produit dans le monde entier.

    Alpha Blondy (born Seydou Koné on January 1, 1953 in Dimbokoro, Côte d'Ivoire, West Africa), is an Ivoirian reggae singer and a major international recording artist. Alpha Blondy sings mainly in his native language of Dioula, in French and English, and also sometimes in Arabic or Hebrew. His lyrics convey strong political attitudes and a fine sense of humor. In particular, he coined the French term democrature (an English equivalent might be "democratatorship") to identify some African governments.
