Jali Fily Cissokho: kora crossing centuries and continents

Wednesday, June 5, 2024 at 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Jali Fily Cissokho is one of Senegal’s renowned GRIOT musicians Since moving to the UK in 2002 he has performed at many major festivals and worked with renowned musicians including his nephew Seckou Keita, Toumani Diabate, Baba Maal, and Will Gregory (of Goldfrapp fame).

His work has featured in the Bollywood film Ravaan, collaborating with composer AR Rahman, the Netflix production Outlaw King and has also performed for Camilla, The Queen, and Microsoft’s Bill Gates.

His music and compositions are deeply rooted in his Mande tradition and his performances show the virtuosity of his kora playing as he is able to pick three parts at once: bass line, melody and improvisations above them, mixing fearsome technique with an ability to improvise scintillating runs out of thin air.

He has created a unique musical blend that spans centuries and continents, ranging from solo traditional Mande music to rocking electro-kora with his Coute Diomboulou Band.

This maestro of the kora presents his musical heritage with incredible virtuosity.

This event is a fundraiser for Oxford Health Charity. Oxford Health Charity is registered in England and Wales – Charity number 1057285 Registered office Oxford Health Charity, Warneford Hospital, Warneford Lane, Oxford, OX3 7JX
