Event Details

Workshop: Stockholm-Dakar Musical Road Trip
Swedish/Senegalese couple Sousou & Maher Cissoko share a destiny shaped by music. Sousou grew up in southern Sweden and fell in love with the kora, a West African stringed instrument, when her father started playing with the Gambian griot Alagie Mbye at an early stage. Maher Cissoko was born into a well-known griot family from Casamance, Senegal, and learned to play the kora at an early age.

Together they will share their musical story at Embassy of Sweden, while performing selected pieces from their repertoire.

Doors open: 6:00 PM
Show starts: 6:30 PM
