This concert sees Toumani play both solo and in a duo with his son Sidiki. Father and son performed together in the UK for the first time at the Royal Festival Hall last year, and now this concert gives you the chance to witness live Mali’s ancient griot tradition of the master-and-apprentice, a unique family bond, passing on the knowledge. Toumani can trace this magical tradition of family hereditary musicians back through 71 generations, and now you can be part of it. This is mesmerising, exquisite and delicate music from the world’s finest 21-stringed West African harp exponents.
