David Jones Curates: Drums, Kora, Guitar
A meeting of West African heritage and global improvisation, David, Amadou and Luke perform together for the first time tonight.
Amadou Suso is a master of the kora, a traditional West African stringed instrument, and is also a direct descendent of the world’s first kora player, Koriang Musa Suso. As a music maker, or ‘jali’ by birthright, Amadou embodies the griot traditions of the Mandinka of West Africa. Known widely as the ‘Jimi Hendrix of the kora’, Amadou fulfils his ancestral duties to share the culture of his people through an intoxicating contemporary mastery of the African harp.
Luke Koszański’s music is shaped by his father’s blues and rock music, and the diverse international artists he has played with from Ethiopia, Gambia, West Papua and India. Both Luke and Amadou were members of The Senegambian Jazz band, whose debut album won Best Global Act for The Age Music Awards.
