Cissokho System

Cissokho Systems music emerges from the manding culture with the kora virtuoso and singer Solo Cissokho in front. Solo Cissokho won the BBC3 music awards 2003 together with Ellika Frisell, and was as well nominated to the Nordic Councils Musicprize 2003. Cissokho System is featuring a powerful percussion section from Senegal, Norway and the Ivory coast. Together with a guitar & konting-player and a bassist from Norway they form a combo that have managed to combine ideas from the different cultures in a very dynamic and integrated way.
