As part of the fourth edition of Bonjour India festival, Alliance Francaise de Delhi invites famous Kora player from Mali, Chérif Soumano along with Shahnawaz Ahmed, an incredible classical guitarist from India for its next InChorus.
Chérif SOUMANO is a rising star of the Kora; he offers music of his time, while being deeply rooted with the traditional repertoire that his father transmitted to him in Mali. He has performed with Dee Dee Bridgewater, Tiken Jah Fakoly, Roberto Fonseca, co-founded the World Kora Trio and recorded for Marcus Miller. He is undoubtedly one of the most talented and promising Kora players of his generation by his talent to communicate musically with all types of music, without mentioning his exceptional virtuosity coupled with great expressiveness.
Shahnawaz AHMED is quite an unusual classical Indian musician, playing various styles on modern guitar with unique technique and incredible ease.
