Dembo Jobarteh was born in 1976 in Niani Kayai, The Gambia, as a member of a well known griot family. He is a nephew of Amadu Bansang Jobarteh and Malamini Jobarteh.

Dembo was brought up in accordance with family traditions. As a child he worked in the groundnut and rice paddies, studying kora and drums in his spare time.

At the age of 18 Dembo was a professional koraplayer and singer. He went to Dakar, Senegal and played in restaurants and tourist markets. After two years he came back to The Gambia. Here he founded the Gambian Griot School of Music and Dance.

According to Dembo everyone can learn to play the kora. "But to play like a griot is a gift from God and, as we say here, a gift from the devils."
