 Get into the West African groove with Kadialy Kouyate and his ensemble. Musician and singer-songwriter Kouyaté and his Sound Archive ensemble take inspiration from West Africa’s griot tradition of oral storytellers, poets and musicians, and from the musical culture of the Mandinka people.

Kouyate was born into a long line of griots in Southern Senegal. The inheritor of a traditional style of singing and kora playing, he has performed across the UK for the last decade.

Since his arrival in the UK Kadialy has played a significant part in enriching the London musical scene with his griot legacy. He has been teaching the Kora at Soas university of London for the last decade and he has also been involved in countless musical projects both as a collaborator and a session musician
