Master drummer and kora player Modou N’Diaye Cissokho is a member of the internationally renowned Cissokho family of griot musicians from the Casamance region of Southern Senegal. As a virtuoso drummer and percussionist with a superb repertoire of rhythms, he plays a variety of instruments ranging from djembe, sabar and talking drum to his leading instrument, the 22 string kora (West African harp) which he will be focussing on for this concert with The Golden Kora Band. Modou N’Diaye Cissokho is standing in for his uncle, Sadio Cissokho, who is unfortunately unable to travel due to ill health.
Before the time of pen and paper in West Africa, it was the role of the Cissokho Griot family to preserve the region’s history by passing on stories of creation and culture through song. Entrusted by the Royal Mandingue Empire as advisers since the 14th century, Modou’s family are still notorious for producing the most highly -skilled musicians in Senegal’s southern region.
These traditional influences continue to inspire his music today whilst allowing him to collaborate with modern ensembles of electric bass and drum kit producing the updated Senegalese sound.
Returning for their third European tour this decade the 4-strong group are now set to bring their native dance styles of mbalax, diambadong and eekon kon back to Europe in the autumn of 2015.
