Preview: 3MA – Ballaké Sissoko, Driss El Maloumi & Rajery @ The Jazz Cafe (London; Sunday 22nd March 2020)

3ma jazz cafe

3MA are somewhat a pan-African power group formed of Ballaké Sissoko, Driss El Maloumi and Rajery in which they interweave three different musical traditions, each ancient, from various parts of Africa.

Ballaké Sissoko represents Mali by playing the traditional West African harp – the kora – of which the playing skills are hereditarily passed down through a few family names: one family being the Sissokos.

Driss El Maloumi will bring the oud, an Arabic lute from Morocco, and finally Rajery will play the valiha, a bamboo tube zither from Madagascar. Together their music has achieved great acclaim as they were the runners up in the Songlines 2019 African & Middle Was artist category.

The music is emotional, as well as providing upbeat grooves, whilst the three ancient instruments invoke a nostalgia. With many, many strings to entertain us, this music is uplifting and an absolute treat for any fan of ancient or African music.
