Solo Cissokho at the Earagail Arts Festival


Solo Cissokho is a seventh generation griot story teller and musician from southern Senegal.The griots, like the Gaelic storytellers in Irish history,played an important role in the mighty Manding empire that once ruled most of West Africa.
Here Solo mesmerizes an audience of young and old with his stories and songs, I only wish that I had sat on the floor with the kids...they got to play the kola.
