Jally Kebba Susso

  • This event has now passed

Kora-playing maverick Jally Kebba Susso returns to Stage 2 on his UK tour showcasing some exciting new material.

Dubbed by Songlines as "London’s favourite griot", Jally is a master of blending sounds, consistently pushing new frontiers for the 21-string West African instrument with his band, Manding Sabu. Whether rocking large festival stages or stirring intimate venues, for the last 10 years his Afrocentric genre-bending compositions have generated a new audience for the kora and earned him the reputation as a pioneering force on the London global music scene.

The upcoming album Freedom will be released later in 2019 and promises to refine his psych kora, bass, heavy percussions and sax into an rhythm-heavy, rapid-fire journey: 74 generations of Afro-Manding kora tradition dexterously woven together with jazz, Afrobeat and funk rock.
