On 4th December, it’s griot day at the Jazz Café. Head for the Camden venue, and you will have a one-off opportunity to enjoy three masters performing on the same stage.

Mamadou Diabaté, Diabel Cissokho and Sourakata Koité are three remarkable interpreters of the West African music tradition. They all come from griot families and have inherited their lineage’s gift; they have become masters of the kora and balafon.

Today, they bring forward the Burkinabe and Senegalese traditions, welcoming influences from all over the world. So, don’t miss the chance to experience their talent and artistry when they perform in London.
