Respecting a musical tradition that stretches back to the 13th Century and the Mandinka Empire of West Africa, Seckou is an established contemporary master of the Kora, the 21 stringed African harp. With his feet firmly rooted in the 21st Century and the identity of his heritage clear, Seckou is keen to experiment and develop fresh ideas. 2012 brings a new album, Miro, for release in September and a brand new show featuring an exciting seven piece band touring in October and November. This project represents a return to Seckou's family and the original influences that inspired him as a young musician in Senegal, the results are truly magical.
"A brilliant live performer with stacks of charisma"? - Lucy Duran, BBC Radio 3
