Henley Festival
10-14thJuly 2019

A vibrant mix of tradition and innovation with electric and acoustic ambient interludes and rocking dance numbers.

The Coute Diomboulou Band led by Cissokho, is composed of musicians, mostly griots, from the old Mande Empire of West Africa. Band members have collaborated with many internationally famous artists including Senegal’s super star Youssou N’Dour.

Deep in the heart of this band is the trance-inducing sacred rhythms that invoke other worlds, call down the spirits and at the same time bring together the heart of ancient Africa and the bustling energy of modernity.
