The African Advocacy Network Presents: “Diekafo” – Speaking Together with Karamo Susso and His Band plus Mamadou and Vanessa. Karamo Susso is an international kora star, who grew up in a griot village in Mali, Africa, where he started playing kora as a child, and was performing for large crowds before he was big enough to hold the instrument up by himself. Fully immersed in the tradition, he learned from world-renowned players like his uncle Ballake Sissok and Toumani Diabate, Vieux Farka Toure (son of Ali Farka Toure) and Sambou Susso the “Queen of Afro-Manding.” He has performed at national stadiums in Benin, Togo, Burkina Faso, Mali and Senegal as a featured soloist with UNESCO’s Fescuao Mali
