Dembo Konte & Kausu Kuyateh

Dembo Konte & Kausu Kuyateh has been played on NTS shows including Floating World Music., with Fayinkunko first played on 19 February 2015.

Dembo Konte & Kausu Kuyateh are master kora players from West Africa. Perhaps more correct is to call these two griots. Foremost, they are the storytellers and keepers of the oral tradition of preserving the history of people (often royalty) and events via music. The tradition is often passed down from generation to generation, often within the same family. In this way, the stories and histories are taught and retained for hundreds of years.
