SARA SUSSO AFRICAN MUSIC ON TOUR ANL-151110-232609009

Kora player and percussionist from The Gambia Sura Susso performed in Assington on Sunday, as part of a series of rural concerts supported by Arts Council East.

The Kora, a traditional harp, much like a lute with its complex arrangement of 21 strings, creates beautiful fluid rhythms across a range of styles from high-energy dance anthems to sacred lyrical ballads. Susso told ancestral stories and legends through the music of the Kora, an essential part of the rich heritage of West Africa.
