Teacher's Biography:

I am a multi-instrumentalist Kora player, singer songwriter and percussionist from The Gambia. I was born into a griot family, which is a tradition that originates from West Africa and refers to cultural figures that carry knowledge and the regional identity of the communities through song, music and poetry. I fuse traditional foundation with diverse musical influences in order to promote my culture and heritage, creating a unique and innovative sound.

I have collaborated with many different skilled musicians from different cultural backgrounds all, which have added to my experiences as a multi skilled musician.

I am offering a unique opportunity to teach 1 to 1 lessons, group session or lessons in a workshop environment. I have extensive experience of teaching different ages and abilities ranging from nursery to university students.

I am flexible to the students learning needs and understand each student has an individual learning style and desire to achieve different outcomes. If you are interested in West African music and culture or just, wish to try something new then this is for you.
