Ahead of his concert live streamed from our Djanogly Recital Hall on Friday 19 March at 7:30pm, Sura Susso discusses music making with Postgraduate Music student Amber Frost and Lakeside's Head of Music Programmes, Catherine Hocking.

Sura Susso is a creative, versatile and talented kora player and percussionist, who hails from a Traditional Griot family in Gambia West Africa. Exhibiting his talent in an assortment of countries, venues and festivals, Sura was invited to perform at an opening ceremony at Manchester City Hospital playing for HRH Queen Elizabeth II in 2012. In 2009 Sura and his Sister, Binta Susso, had the privilege of performing at Glastonbury festival with the legendary Baaba Maal. Sura’s musical gift, once heard, is not easy to forget. His melodic style resonates deep within, transporting you far away to a harmonic place of sheer delight.
