He has toured in Morocco, Mexico, and widely thru Europe and performed in regional festivals in East Africa including Sauti za Busara (Zanzibar), Bayimba (Uganda) and FestmHorn (Djibouti).

His most recent album Kokorio was released in 2016.

Simply put Makadem is one of a kind. He speaks the universal language of good music. with a personality that can transmit fire to small and large crowds alike. Pure energy!
