SOUSOU & MAHER CISSOKO
Multiple award-winning Senegalese/Swedish duo Sousou & Maher Cissoko are crossing borders in their music just like in their life together. Constantly on the move with musical and human meetings as their principal driving force. Maher was born to play kora and Sousou is one of very few female kora players in the world.
Sousou & Maher Cissoko, from the South of Sweden and the South of Senegal, is one of Sweden’s most appreciated world music groups. They have been touring in Canada, USA, Africa, Asia and various countries in Europe and performed at jazz, folk, world and city festivals, concert halls, clubs and schools.
Both Swedish television and the Swedish radio have done documentaries about Sousou & Maher Cissoko and when Youssou N'dour received the Polar Music Price they sang him to tears performing two of N'dour’s songs together with the Swedish hip hop star Timbuktu.
