Contemporary kora maestro on fire
Respecting a musical tradition that stretches back to the 13th Century, Seckou is an established contemporary master of the Kora. With his feet firmly rooted in the 21st Century and the identity of his heritage clear, Seckou is keen to experiment and develop fresh ideas. 2012 brings a new album, Miro, and show featuring an exciting 7 piece band. This project represents a return to Seckou’s family and the original influences that inspired him as a young musician in Senegal, the results are truly magical.
