Variously described as a 'griot (praise singer), composer, djembe master, virtuoso and pioneer', Seckou is a rare type of musician, seated in tradition whilst constantly pushing the boundaries of his art.
A true master of the kora - a 22-stringed West African harp - Seckou, from the Casmance area of Southern Senegal, was a childhood prodigy, born of the line of griots and kings. Seckou has graced the international stage since 1996, earning worldwide acclaim for his kora playing and appearing with a host of fellow artists, including Salif Keita, Youssou N'Dour, Miriam Makeba and Neil Finn.
Without doubt, Seckou's performance with us in 2015 was one of the most talked-about gigs in the whole year. Seckou is a true genius on the 22-string Kora and has a fantastic stage presence. I have no doubt this is another night that will be remembered for a very long time.
