Gambian musician visits Dorset
The sound of the Kora is often described as: beautiful, soft, enchanting,
and almost medicinal. Suntou Susso - a Kora player, percussionist, singer,
and composer from The Gambia - plays this rare instrument with his full
band at the Marine. 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, including Seckou Keita, Solo
Cissokho and Sura and Mamudou Susso.
Playing this rare instrument goes beyond being a way of making a living for
Susso and his band; it is truly considered a lifestyle and a culture to them.
He describes his work as, ‘music for the soul. It's a peaceful sound that we
create together - music that has a purpose in healing. You know so many things
are happening in the world nowadays, we are all so stressed. But the music we
create is to re-centre, music to heal, music to listen to and music to dance
cost £12 in advance, and the show starts at 8:00 P.M.
