*All formats include download

Reissue of the immaculately-executed (mostly) solo kora epics by Senegalese griot Sourakata Koité. Recorded near Delft, Holland in 1984 with two Neumann mics in an old converted chicken coop.

Sourakata Koité is born in 1955 in Malème, Senegal, a Malinke-speaking area). As Sourakata says, “All the Koité are musicians!” He is indeed a member of a family of djéli (or griot in french), the hereditary caste of musician-storyteller-historians in West Africa.
