Global Sound Sessions

Funky vibes and upbeat West African grooves, Kadialy Kouyate’s Sound Archive guarantees to bring audiences to their feet!

Kadialy Kouyate and his ensemble Sound Archive, featuring an outstanding group of London musicians, play original music inspired by the Mandinka griot tradition that will lead you into the West African groove.

Born into the great line of Kouyate griots in Southern Senegal, Kadialy’s mesmerising kora playing and singing style have been appreciated in many prestigious venues as both a soloist and in different ensembles.

Since his arrival in the UK, Kadialy has played a significant part in enriching the London musical scene with his griot legacy. He has been teaching the Kora at SOAS, University of London for the last decade and he has been involved in countless musical projects both as a collaborator and a session musician.
