Suntou Susso at Manchester Folk Festival
With support from Coruja Jones
Susso is a multi-instrumentalist: Kora player, percussionist, singer and composer from The Gambia.
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’s family includes some of the world’s most well-respected West African musicians. His musical abilities are outstanding, perhaps unique for his generation. An in-demand and charismatic performer, he attracted attention as soon as he arrived on the UK music scene.
Coruja Jones is a songwriting project from Manchester (UK) based musician and songwriter Dan Jones. Originally hailing from The West Midlands, he has become embedded in Manchester’s eclectic musical landscape.
