The Venue, 1 Holland Rd, Hove BN3 1JF, UK
African Night Fever brings the sunshine spirits of West Africa through music to The Brunswick with Suntou Susso and Band for an uplifting night of joy. Susso is a multi-instrumentalist: Kora player, percussionist, singer and composer from The Gambia. Born a Griot in a 700-year old tradition, the Kora - harp-lute with 22 strings - is unique to the Griots of the Mandinka people. Griots have a unique societal role as oral historians, transmitting and preserving a people's culture through the generations in song, music and poetry. £12.50adv 7.30PM 18+ Suntou's family includes some of the world's most well-respected West African musicians. His musical abilities are outstanding, perhaps unique for his generation. An in-demand and charismatic performer, he has made a name for himself with his versatile approach to playing the Kora and a unique voice to accompany the playing. This evening promises to be a special with African Night Fever DJs in the mix.
