About the event

🌍Born in Casamance, the southern region of Senegal, Jali Buba grew up living between neighbouring countries Gambia and Senegal. He comes from the griot-famous Kuyateh family of Medina Wandifa in Senegal. A griot is a renowned West African storyteller, singer, musician and oral historian. Griots often accompany their stories and songs with music, namely the kora, and Jali Buba Kuyateh continues this tradition with his eclectic sound of African beats that are complemented by western undertones.🎤

🎶The kora is a stringed instrument that resembles the harp and lute, which Jali has played since he was five years old. By the time he was ten, he has already composed three songs and was destined to be an artist.

Now living in Victoria, Jali has appeared on festival line-ups around Australia including WOMADelaide, Melbourne International Arts Festival, Woodford and Port Fairy Folk Festivals. He has also performed with some of Australia’s top musicians including jazz legend Bob Sedergreen, guitarist Doug DeVries, and West African musicians Afro Moses and the Mohata brothers.
