Discover the musical stylings of KORA player, percussionist and singer-songwriter SURA SUSSO. Originally from the Gambia, Surahata ‘Sura’ Susso was born into a griot family, a tradition that originates from West Africa and refers to cultural figures that carry knowledge and the regional identity of their communities through song, music and poetry. Sura is the son of Mamudou Susso, one of the finest living kora players, and Fatou Binta Cissokho, who was a gifted singer and percussionist. Sura fuses his traditional influences with new genres of contemporary music in order to promote his cultural roots and heritage, creating a truly unique and innovative sound.
