Ba Cissoko has made a name for himself in a contemporary register inspired by the Manding tradition with his electric version of the kora, an instrument highly prized by the griots. By interweaving percussion, deep vocals, bass and acoustic kora, the young Guinean quartet treat listeners to inventive sounds with funky accents. Ba Cissoko invites the group’s mentors Tiken Jah Fakoly and Neneh Cherry to guest on their second album, produced by Amadou and Mariam’s label, to emanate an extremely topical metaphor for Africa.

NEW ALBUM: Adouna [All other music] March 2006

Ba Cissoko s'est imposé dans un registre contemporain inspiré de la tradition mandingue en rendant électrique la kora, fierté des griots. Y mêlant percussions, chant profond, basse et kora acoustique, le jeune quatuor guinéen offre une musique inventive, aux accents funky. Sur leur second album, produit par le label d'Amadou et Mariam, Ba Cissoko invitent leurs aînés Tiken Jah Fakoly et Neneh Cherry pour pulser une métaphore très actuelle de l’Afrique.
