“When we heard your music we loved it”
"A Senegalese kora player of exquisite finesse, he is also possessed
of a thrilling, soulful voice, and he combines his twin talents
to moving effect in performance"
Senegalese master musician and inspirational praise singer, Jali Fily plays the 21-string West African kora (harp/lute) and comes from a family of musicians whose skills and traditions have been passed down from generation to generation. Yet, as a citizen of the 22nd Century, he is also attuned to the rhythms of the present and future, creating a unique natural musical blend that spans centuries and continents. His performances range from solo traditional Mande music and song to rocking electro-kora with his Coute Diomboulou Band. Work has lead him to performances and recordings with the likes of Toumani Diabate, Baaba Maal, AR Rahman, Ricky Kej and Dr. L. Subramaniam.
