Concert & Talk
Drumming of Senegal
A lively and enjoyable night of magical melodies and uplifting rhythms, including a talk on voluntourism.
The music features delicate, melodic strumming of the harp-like Kora, supported by energetic, infectious rhythms created with the traditional hand-played Djembe drum.
Thursday 13 September 2018, 6pm-8pm
Jalikunda was formed by Senegal-born Mamadou Cissoko, an exceptional Kora and Djembe player, and the group now comprises him and his extended family members!
Based in Bristol, these friendly professional musicians combine to make one of the foremost African ensembles in the country, and travel all around the UK to bring the rich musical heritage of Senegal to unprepared but pleasantly surprised British ears.
Refreshments and food will be available after the performance.
This event offers a unique opportunity to hear some of the sounds of Africa. The night will also include a talk on voluntourism as part of NIAS Doing Good Series. If you want to learn how to get involved in development projects that provide real benefit, then this talk will share some important tips and insights.
Tickets are FREE but you must register in advance.
