Lamine Sonko Trio

10 May, 7.30pm
Delmar Gallery

Charismatic and multi-talented, Lamine Sonko is a brilliant dancer, singer, percussionist and guitarist. He was born in Senegal into a highly respected family of griots or keepers of traditional culture, with his father the director of the National Ballet and his mother a lead dancer.

After moving to Melbourne in 2004, Sonko established himself as Australia’s leading Afro-beat lyricist, fronting The Public Opinion Afro Orchestra and collaborating with various artists including Grammy Award winner Wouter Kellerman.

In 2012 he founded his most successful project to date: Lamine Sonko & The African Intelligence, a 10 piece band that delivers a rhythmic collision of African roots music, jazz, funk, and reggae. Their debut album AFRO EMPIRE was released in 2017.

For this intimate concert, he will be performing in a trio format, blending traditional African rhythms and melodies with the contemporary sound of acoustic guitar, telling stories of ancient lands and cross-cultural journeys.

Proudly presented by Trinity Grammar’s Society of the Arts & Delmar Gallery as part of the 2018 Concert Series.
