Event Description: Bonjour India: [In]Chorus Strings Together – A fusion of Kora, Guitar and Tabla

As part of the fourth edition of Bonjour India festival, Alliance Française de Delhi invites famous Kora player from Mali, Chérif Soumano along with Shahnawaz Ahmed, an incredible classical guitarist & Shahbaaz Khan, a traditional tabla player from India.

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. Accompanied by the young talent Shahbaaz Khan at the tabla, they will present their respective traditional repertoire, as well as some pieces resulting from their residency, which took place at the Alliance Française de Delhi.
