Kora Trio

Series ”Les Incontournables”, presented by :




With Diely Mori Tounkara (Mali – Qc),

Sadio Sissokho (Senegal – Qc)

and Yamoussa Bangoura (Guinea – Qc)



“When I was little, every time I heard the kora, I could feel it resonate deep inside me.” This was said by Diely Mori Tounkara but it could have just as easily come from Sissokho or Yamoussa Bangoura — these three artists unite around this West African harp that continues to fascinate them, even after so many years of playing. This majestic 21-stringed instrument produces a universal, almost mystical sound that transcends time — a sound that contains Africa’s story of yesterday, today and tomorrow, accompanying moments of sadness and melancholy as well as times of joy and elation — a captivating expression of griot wisdom.
