Maher Cissoko was born into a legendary griot family in Casamance, Senegal, that has seen the art of kora playing being passed from generation to generation through more than 700 years. Maher has embellished this tradition and developed his own explosive and danceable style.

Maher Cissoko出生于塞内加尔一个音乐世家,而科拉琴也在这个家族演绎了近700多年的历史,Maher Cissoko继承了这一传统并发扬了自己独特的风格。

 


Sousou Cissoko, a singer from Sweden is one of few female kora players in the world. She fell in love with the kora at an early age and travelled to The Gambia aged only 19 to study the West African Mandinka traditions. Since then she has travelled many times in West Africa to study kora, singing and guitar.

Sousou Cissoko是一名瑞典歌手,同时也是为数不多的女性科拉演奏家之一。她很小就热爱科拉琴,19岁的时候更是只身一人到冈比亚学习西非曼丁文化(科拉琴演奏、演唱技巧、吉他演奏)。

 


 

The foundation in the kora musical tradition is to constantly renew and find your own way, and that’s literally what Sousou & Maher are doing. In 2011 they drove all the way from Stockholm to Dakar, a trip that became the inspiration for new songs and the ability to see connections where others see boundaries.

每个科拉琴演奏家都可以在科拉音乐中找到自己的风格,并且常演常新,这也是科拉音乐的传统,Sousou & Maher也不例外。2011年Sousou & Maher从斯德哥尔摩(瑞典首都)自驾到达喀尔(塞内加尔首都),这一段旅程给了他们新的灵感,并且成就了专辑《 Stockholm to Dakar》的发行。
