Toumani Diabate


The double Grammy-winning master of the ancient kora returns to St George's with a brand new show in which solo recitals are alternated with intimate music for three further musicians. As someone who has had a relationship with the city of Bristol since his participation in the earliest days of WOMAD, Toumani is a particularly treasured figure locally, and his last, sold-out solo show here was a miraculous performance of remarkable beauty and intensity. As Toumani is now one of the world's leading artists in any genre, and at the absolute peak of his powers, this will be an experience to treasure forever.
