Jally Kebba Susso, 2011

Jally Kebba Susso is a UK-based Gambian kora player and composer who frequently performs in Hackney music venues. A kora typically has 21 strings, which are played by plucking them with your fingers. In West African culture, the kora player brings together history, music and storytelling to create a griot, a repository of oral traditions.

This style of music is very popular in areas where African heritage communities live across Hackney and Europe.
