Suso: Gambia's Global Griots

Susso is a collaborative project between the Suso and Kuyateh families of Gambia, in particular Yusupha and Ansumana Suso, Jabou Kuyateh and U.K. producer and bassist Huw Bennett. The album is a strong example of how ancient Mande music not only survives in our globally connected world, but finds bold new expression and exerts influence far beyond West African borders. Narrated and produced by Riley Difford.
