Since the age of 18 Kora master Sadio Cissokho has been touring the world performing the beautiful music of the Casamance region of Senegal. He hails from the Cissokho Grioti family who have been the musical carriers of history and tradition, entrusted by the Royal Mandingue Empire as advisers since the 14th century. No stranger to the UK, Sadio has previously performed both at Womad and Glastonbury Festivals. Sadio leads his 5-strong ensemble in repertoire that mixes the traditional with modern creating a performance which seamlessly integrates all the elements into a cutting-edge Senegalese sound.

‘This is Casamance Rock, 700 years of griot history plugged into an amplifier.’ (WorldMusic.co.uk)
