Born in Senegal to a family of musicians, storytellers, historians, singers and dancers (collectively known as griots), Sadio Sissokho’s roots are richly embedded in the Mandingue culture. Born in Mali to a large family of griots, Diely Mori Tounkara followed in the footsteps of his musician father by becoming an undisputed master of the kora. La Kora des Griots unites these two masters around the majestic kora instrument to create a sound that contains Africa’s story of yesterday, today, and tomorrow, capturing the expression of griot wisdom.
