Bajaly Suso

Friday 8th September 2017, 7:30pm

bajaly-300x218

Bajaly comes from a Gambian family who have passed down the tradition of musicianship through many generations. He is related to past masters Jali Nyama Suso and Foday Musa Suso and has been playing and singing the traditional songs of the Gambia for almost 20 years.
Dressed in traditional robes, singing ancient songs and telling folk tales of his native land, Bajaly is part of the legacy of ancient Africa. With a haunting, plaintive voice and prodigious technique on his unique instrument.

Entry $15 (adult); $10 (child) at the door.
