He comes from a long line of Griots (Oral historians) and is very proud to promote his culture through performances and storytelling, performing solo and as part of larger ensembles. Seikou has participated in many festivals, galas and melas. The distinct and unforgettable sound of the kora has had much success playing alongside some of Britain’s finest musicians.

Seikou’s style of world music is adaptable to all occasions and he has performed at events such as the Edinburgh Harp Festival and the fields of Glastonbury. He has also worked with festivals and universities, giving taster sessions, performances and workshops in playing the kora.

HELP OUTSIDELEFT

Outsideleft exists on a precarious no budget budget. We are interested in hearing from deep and deeper pocket types willing to underwrite our cultural vulture activity. We're not so interested in plastering your product all over our stories, but something more subtle and dignified for all parties concerned. Contact us and let's talk. [HELP OUTSIDELEFT]

WRITE FOR OUTSIDELEFT

If Outsideleft had arms they would always be wide open and welcoming to new writers and new ideas. If you've got something to say, something a small dank corner of the world needs to know about, a poem to publish, a book review, a short story, if you love music or the arts or anything else, write something about it and send it along. Of course we don't have anything as conformist as a budget here. But we'd love to see what you can do. Write for Outsideleft, do. [SUBMISSIONS FORM HERE]
