About Celebrating Sanctuary ft. Suntou Susso (Gambia)

Suntou Susso, multi-instrumentalist, is a Kora player, percussionist, singer and composer from The Gambia. Born a Griot in a 700-year old tradition, the Kora is unique to the Griots of the Mandinka people. Griots have a unique societal role as oral historians, transmitting and preserving a people's culture through the generations in song, music and poetry.

From a family of highly respected West African musicians, Suntou's musical abilities are outstanding, unique for his generation. An in-demand and charismatic performer, he attracted attention as soon as he arrived on the UK music scene. He has collaborated with world class musicians across many genres including Jazz, modern jazz fusion and opera, and was invited to perform alongside Senegalese singer Youssou N’Dour at the O2 Arena.

Suntou has a huge fan base in The Gambia and has released successful singles and videos, which continue to receive daily exposure on national TV and radio.
