Award-winning Senegalese kora virtuoso Seckou Keita and his quartet combine African drums and percussion, double bass, Egyptian violin, and cajon with Keita’s innovative twists of improvisation on the 22-string West African kora.

Keita’s eclecticism is reflected in his quintet, whose members include Davide Mantovani (Italy), Surahata Susso (The Gambia), and Samy Bishai (Egypt). The band will perform tracks from their album ‘The Silimbo Passage’ as well as new material.
