Greetings my family! So much has been going on that I don’t even know where to start. First, and foremost, thank you for being on my email list. It does make a difference, feeling as though you have others to share your journey with.
Students have been asking me to post more content so I’ve put up a few more stories that I know they’ve enjoyed.
I’m back in the recording studio working on my follow-up album to Ancient Strings. The working title is Ancient Voices. It has taken me more than 20 years to get my Bamana Language Skills to a point where I am comfortable singing and recording. I will definitely get a few advanced samples to all of you on my list because I appreciate you for accompanying me on this journey. I’ve posted pictures on my Instagram.

I got a message from my elder brother Alhaji Papa Susso that he’s gonna be returning to the U.S. from the Gambia West Africa soon. He is indeed an iconic figure in the griot community. His kora playing is exceptional. He’s on the East Coast but travels globally. If any of you are seeking a griot for your program I would highly encourage you to reach out to him. Here’s a link to Papa’s Facebook Page.
Ok, I’m gonna keep it brief because I know how busy all of our lives are.
