Suntou Susso is a multi-instrumentalist: Kora player, percussionist, singer and composer from The Gambia. Join him with his full band for a very special concert to celebrate his debut album.

Kanèfonyo (Never give up) will be released on 25th March 2022. Suntou composed, arranged and produced the album in Gambia and the UK.

Born a Griot in a 700-year old tradition, the Kora – harp-lute with 22 strings – is unique to the Griots of the Mandinka people. Griots have a unique societal role as oral historians, transmitting and preserving a people’s culture through the generations in song, music and poetry.

Suntou has played the festival circuit including WOMAD, Shambala, Wilderness Festival, Hay Festival, Beyond the Border and more.

Suntou’s family includes some of the world’s most well-respected West African musicians, including Seckou Keita, Solo Cissokho and Sura and Mamudou Susso
