Sharon Shannon tour dates
A potent cocktail of spiritual Afro-Mandinka music with a twist of jazz composed by a Sekou Keita, a griot and international Kora player with a fantastic musical family pedigree.
Respecting a musical tradition that stretches back to the 13th Century and the Mandinka Empire of West Africa, Seckou is an established contemporary master of the Kora, the 21-stringed African harp. With his feet firmly rooted in the 21st century and the identity of his heritage clear, Seckou is keen to experiment and develop fresh ideas.
'... an inspired exponent of the Kora' (The Guardian).
