About Celebrating Sanctuary: Kadialy Kouyate

Celebrating Sanctuary Birmingham (CSB) embark on new series of free lunchtime events in partnership with THSH. Once a month CSB will be presenting some amazing World Music artists from across the country, in the newly refurbished Symphony Hall Foyer. CSB will bring you music originating from around the world including: Senegal, Zimbabwe, Guinea Bissau, Haiti and Iran.

The series starts with Senegalese Kora Maestro Kadialy Kouyate, who is descended from a great line of griots dating back to the 13th century. Kadialy’s kora playing and singing style have been appreciated in many ensembles and institutions, enriching the London music scene with his griot legacy. He has played at venues and festivals across the world, released several albums, and makes regular radio and television appearances, including “Later with Jools Holland” and “BBC Focus on Africa”. Kadialy Koyate draws on his heritage and its traditional songs to create his own mesmerising compositions.
