Entrusted by the Royal Mandingue Empire as advisers since the 14th century, Sadio Cissokho’s family are still notorious for producing the most highly -skilled musicians in Senegal’s southern region, the Casamance. And Sadio, who left Senegal for the first time aged 18 to back his elder brother Solo Cissokho’s pioneering modern kora performance on a tour spanning between India and Norway, is certainly no exception. After many years of successfully touring with other family members and his immediate family band, Jalikunda, Sadio won ‘Best Casamance Musician 2009’. After two recent UK and Scandinavian tours that championed dance floors in a way local bands could only dream of, their
5-strong group are now set to bring their native dance styles of mbalax, diambadong and eekon kon back to Europe in the Autumn of 2015.
