Artistic director / Composer / Multi-instrumentalist


LAMINE SONKO‚ÄôS work is a unique synthesis of contemporary and traditional music, steeped in the varied cultural musical legacies that have informed his approach as a composer and musician. In his artistic practice, he pushes boundaries to experiment with fusing the styles of traditional West African, contemporary classical and jazz, drawing on ancient African musical concepts that talk to people about the present human condition and the social function of the arts to foster connection and new community consciousness.
