Sousou & Maher Cissoko - from Sweden and Senegal - are one of Sweden's most loved world music acts! They've toured in Canada, USA, Africa, Asia and Europe, Swedish TV and radio have made documentaries about the group, they've performed at the prestigious Polar Music Prize, supported one of Sweden's biggest pop artists, Laleh, on her Summer 2017 tour. They've collaborated with hip hop artists like Timbuktu and Kapten Röd among others.

Meet a duo that sees the journey as their goal and the musical and human encounters as their biggest incentives

our story

Sousou and Maher both grew up in families of musicians and it was the interest and love for the West African kora (a harp lute) that brought them together. An important guideline for the troubadour culture - which the kora is a part of - is the preservation of the musical heritage through its musicians’ continuous search for new ways. In Sousou & Maher Cissoko’s case that means magnificent kora playing and soulful singing combined with a rhythmic energy and influences from reggae, mbalax, folk, soul and jazz.

Following the heritage of the Cissoko family of West African griots, the songs deliver an important message of coming together and creating links instead of boundaries between countries and people. This is emphasized by the duo singing in five different languages!
