Mandingo Rhythms with Aboulaye Koné




“Les Étoiles Nuits d’Afrique” Series featured by La Fabrique Culturelle and Télé-Québec


The Sissokho Brothers in concert is like a family reunion of percussion instruments and the kora. Some sabar here, Mbalax over there, hip-hop, reggae, Afrobeat, it’s a party! Dancing, singing, improvising on the back of traditions handed down through the generations. Lots of laughter and good times—you can almost smell the steaming tiep and taste the bissap juice. And sometimes you just sit back and take in the pure magic of the kora. That’s because the Sissokho Brothers are griots. And if they are able to explore the music inside and out without getting lost, it’s because their roots run deep, giving them the profound sense of the traditions that must be preserved.
