  • Baba Sissoko (Ngoni, Tama)

Born in Bamako (Mali), Baba Sissoko is the undisputed master of tamani (the original talking drum), that he started to play when he was a child (thanks to the teaching of his grand-father Djeli Baba Sissoko).
Baba Sissoko plays also ngoni, kamalengoni, guitar, balaphon, calebasse, sildrum and… he sings!
He is from a great and ancient dynasty of griots from Mali.
