JAIME CANTERA & SUNTOU SUSSO
playing guitar and West African kora with vocalist and percussion

8pm
Tickets £14 (£29 including pre-show supper) can be booked on 01460 54973

Jaime Cantera is a Bristol based songwriter who sings in Spanish & English and makes a crossover between different music styles in a lively & colourful mix that with driving rhythms takes you on a journey to distant lands where you find your feet stomping and your arms waving about. He was here last year with the Flamenco dancer Aneta Skutt, but for this concert Jaime will be leading a 5 piece band featuring virtuoso KORA player Suntou Susso. The kora is a West African harp-like instrument .
Suntou was born into a family of 'griots', a West African musical tradition in which music and story-telling skills are passed from generation to generation, thus keeping alive ancient tunes and songs and musical styles
