Senegalese musician Diabel Cissokho is part of the great line of Cissokho griots. His musical pedigree is exceptional. International tours with his family’s band Bannaya led to a long stint as Baaba Maal’s kora player and tours with acclaimed musicians Kandia Kouyate, PeeWee Ellis, Omar Pene, Cheikh Lo and Youssou N’Dour.
Now well established in the UK, Diabel’s virtuosic talent has been welcomed everywhere from WOMAD and Glastonbury to London’s Barbican, where he performed alongside Femi Kuti, Cheikh Lo and Manu Dibango.
