BA CISSOKO

VIRTUOSO CORA ROCK FROM GUINEA

Ba Cissoko is the fantastic group around the Guinean kora virtuoso Ba Cissoko. As one of the first kora players, he used effect pedals to transform the sound of his kora. He immediately attracted attention worldwide. “West Africa meets Jimi Hendrix”, is how the sound was defined. His musical roots lay in the Mandingo-culture of West Africa, which he does not deny, but his band gives it a fresh contemporary twist. Driving rhythms on drums, percussion and bass lay the foundation of the hypnotic kora sound, rousing solos, and kora duels make it impossible for the audiences to stand still.
