In this Global Transfer concert, Kora virtuoso Ballaké Sissoko transports listeners across 700 years of Malian griot tradition and beyond through brilliant collaborations with dynamic, improvising artists such as Derek Gripper, a South African classical guitarist acclaimed for transcribing and recording legendary kora works performed by the masters, as debuted in the United States at ELLNORA 2013.
The next ELLNORA festival takes place in 2025, but you can enjoy a look ahead to it now with this ELLNORA Reverb concert. Admission is free, and no tickets are required!
