Live Music at The Annex – Karamo Susso Trio

April 6 @ 5:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Join us for live music, organic food & beverages!

Karamo Susso is a kora player from Gambia west Africa. Growing up in a griot compound in Mali, he started playing kora as a tiny child, and was performing for large crowds before he was even big enough to hold the instrument up by himself. Fully immersed in the tradition, he learned from world-renowned players like his uncles Ballake Sissoko and Toumani Diabate.

The kora is traditional 21-string harp of the Mande people of West Africa.

Karamo met his first kora as a young child in Mali and hasn’t looked back.

Come join us to discover his amazing music. Organic food and beverage are available as per usual. There is not a cover charge but please consider making a donation to SunJams.
