Casual Sunday: Lamine Cissokho (SEN)
Casual sunday means that people of all kinds meet and hang out all day. Entrance is free, and we offer discounts on all food and drinks – 11.30-18 for everyone and all day long (until midnight) for students!
8 PM: Acoustic Concert with Lamine Cissokho is a kora player born in Senegal. He is a descendant to well-known mandingo musicians, whose traditions date back to the 14th century.
Lamine belongs to the elite among kora players and has performed on international stages since 10 years ago. His music is an unique crossover between mandinka traditions, jazz, world music and virtuosic improvisations.
Ballake Sissoko (Mali/France), Ian Carr (England/Sweden), Mamadou Dembele (Burkina), Ibou Calebasse (Senegal) are some musicians Lamine has collaborated with. This night he performs solo, but now and then adds much more sounds by using a loop effect.
Most welcome, everyone!
