BALLAKE SISSOKO QUARTET - Mali

Ballaké Sissoko is one of Mali's greatest exponents of the kora, the 21-stringed harp of the Mande people. Whilst his music is steeped in ancient West African traditions, this modest and soft-spoken man is also a true innovator. Sissoko’s quartet toured in Nov/Dec 2013, appearing at Colston Hall (Bristol), Rich Mix London, Sage Gateshead, Junction Cambridge, mac Birmingham, The Stables (Milton Keynes), The Apex (Bury), NCEM (York), Pontardarwe Arts Centre and Poole Lighthouse.
