Originally from the Gambia, Sura Susso was born into a griot family. Sura is the son of Mamudou Susso, one of the finest living kora players, and Fatou Binta Cissokho, who was a gifted singer and percussionist. Sura fuses his traditional influences with new genres of contemporary music in order to promote his cultural roots and heritage, creating a truly unique and innovative sound. As a soloist, Sura has performed extensively around the world including Queen Elizabeth II, and at Downing Street for a Royal audience.
Mim Suleiman is a fiery singer from Zanzibar who never fails to engage her audience! With vocals in her native Swahili, English and Fula (to name but a few), accompanied by sweet eukele, Mim can charm the birds from the trees! mixes Afro Brazilian traditional music with lots of other rhythms creating an interesting fusion of powerful vibrant sounds. The repertoire is usually in Portuguese with Yoruba and Capoeira elements. Claudio is a virtuoso on the classic Brazilian frame drum the Pandeiro.
