Event Excerpt
This week, join Jally Kebba Susso’s Manding Sabu, an international band combining the history-rich, melodious sound of the Mandinka kora (West African harp) with powerful party-smashing grooves drawing on reggae, afrobeat, rock, funk and blues. Jally Keba Susso comes from a very long line of Manding griots from Gambia, In West Africa, a griot combines the roles of musician, storyteller, historian, archivist, diplomat and flatterer: you can only be born a griot, never become one. Manding Sabu’s mission is to expand the boundaries of the griot tradition whilst keeping its heart and soul intact.
