Sousou & Maher Cissoko share a destiny shaped by music. Sousou grew up in the south of Sweden and fell in love with the kora when her father started gigging with the Gambian griot Alagie Mbye in the early ’90s. She has since spent a lot of time in West Africa learning to play the instrument and to sing in Wolof and Mandinka.
Maher Cissoko was born into a well-known griot family from Casamance, Senegal, and learnt to play kora at an early age. The couple met when Sousou was invited to continue her kora studies at the Cissoko house in Ziguinchor.
Since then they’ve married, formed the world’s best Swedish-Senegalese band, won a Swedish Folk & World Music award, released two albums and have been touring in Scandinavia, Senegal, South Africa and Zanzibar.
