Concert – Sura Susso and Ling Peng

Djanogly, Djanogly Theatre
Monday 3rd October 2016 (20:00-22:00)
Registration URL

Sura Susso and Ling Peng are virtuosos of two of the world’s oldest instruments: the kora and the erhu. Sura, born into a Gambian griot family, and Ling, a child prodigy in the instrument that literally means ‘two strings’, have played across every continent as soloists, songwriters, and band members in warehouses, ballrooms and concert halls. And now, in the world premiere of this new show, they join forces to explore rhythms, melodies and songs from both cultures and discover ways to blend and bend these two musical traditions. With Michael Cretu on bass and Mohinder Singh on tablas, this will be an exhilarating evening of lyrical melodies, intricate percussion, storytelling and musical mastery.
