The Sunday Joint with Diabel Cissokho
Sunday 21 September 2014
The legendary Sunday Joint has now been playing host to some of the greatest Soul, Latin, Hip Hop, Funk & Salsa acts for the past 15 years. Past acts to grace the stage include Gentlemans Dub Club, Haggis Horns, Submotion Orchestra, Corinne Bailey Rae, Ugly Duckling, Auntie Flo, Andrew Ashong, Mayer Hawthrone, Fatima & The Eglo Band and many many more!
Following on from the band, DJs Bonar Bradbury, Mikey J, Stu Fear and the Butter Side Up crew will be playing a mighty fine mix of Hip Hop, Funk, Soul and Reggae into the early hours of Monday morning.
Senegalese musician Diabel Cissokho is part of the great line of Cissokho griots. Growing up in Dakar, surrounded by a rich musical heritage and a family of musicians, Diabel began playing a number of traditional instruments. However, Diabel’s affinity with the kora was clear from an early age.
Diabel’s musical pedigree is exceptional. International tours with his family’s band Bannaya led to a long stint as Baaba Maal’s kora player, as well as with acclaimed musicians such as Kandia Kouyate, Pee Wee Ellis, Nuru Kane, Daby Balde, Omar Pene and Abdou Diop. Now well established in the UK, Diabel’s virtuosic talent, his “resonant voice and rocking kora style” (Songlines), have been welcomed everywhere from WOMAD and Glastonbury to London’s Barbican, where he performed alongside Femi Kuti, Cheikh Lo and Manu Dibango.
Please note that doors are at 10pm with the band onstage at approximately 11pm-ish – It get’s very busy so we advise arriving early doors to guarantee entry!
