Senegalese musician Diabel Cissokho, part of the great line of Cissokho griots. Growing up in Dakar and Tambacounda, surrounded by a rich musical heritage and a family of musicians, Diabel started playing a number of traditional instruments at a very tender age with the watchful eyes of his family.

However, Diabel’s affinity with the kora was clear from the start with his exceptional musical pedigree Diabel is among the new generation of modernisers of the ancient African Harp to meet the 21st Century’s diasporas demand that brings audiences an electrifying blend of AfroManding fusion and tantalizing traditional West African rhythms stem from the roots of the vibrant cultures of Senegal. International tours with his family’s band Bannaya led to a long stint as Baaba Maal’s kora player, as well as with acclaimed musicians such as Kandia Kouyate, Pee Wee Ellis, Omar Pene, Cheikh Lo, Ernest Ranglin and Youssou N’Dour.

With African Night Fever djs in the mist this promises to be a great night of joy and captivating musical experience.
