Alhaji Papa Susso

Alhaji Papa Susso presents the amazing sound of the African kora from this Master kora (African harp-lute) player and oral historian from The Gambia, West Africa. His ensemble of music and dance comes to us from New York. 

Papa Susso hails from a long line of Griots (traditional oral historians) of the Mandinka people.  He was taught the kora by his father and has been playing since the age of five. The kora, a 21-stringed harp-lute, evolved from earlier hunter harps used by the Mandinka people
