Sourakata Koite

Sourakata Koite

Sunday 16:15 - 17:05

Armed with a twenty-two stringed Kora (a West African cross between lute, bridge and harp), troubadour Sourakata Koite uses this traditional instrument to interpret his Senegalese roots. Moving to Paris in the late 1970s, Koite made his way to The Netherlands to record his debut album “En Hollande” in 1984. Leading up to the reissue of this modern kora classic, which is set to be released in early 2019, Le Guess Who? is excited to present one of Koite's first international appearances in years.
