Sibo Bangoura & Friends

Take an exhilarating musical journey through West Africa with the charismatic Sibo Bangoura (Guinea) and his band on Wednesday 2 September: an evening of traditional song and dance, rich melody and high energy percussion!

Born into a Griot family in Guinea, Sibo truly has rhythm and music are in his blood. As a “Griot”, or traditional storyteller and musician, he is responsible for passing on cultural traditions to the next generation. With Sibo on djembe and kora, the line-up features members of his band Keyim Ba including celebrated Senegalese percussionist Yacou MBaye on doun doun, sabar and congas, Jon Pease on lead guitar, the funky bass lines of Tina Harris and dancer Rachel Bangoura completing the picture.
