Djessou Mory Kanté

Djessou Mory Kanté has been played on NTS shows including Hustlekat, with Deyna (Ben Gomori Edit) first played on 5 May 2020.

Widely considered to be among the very best guitarists to emerge of Guinea in recent years, "Jekorya" Mory Kanté was born to the celebrated griot family that already gave the world Mory Kanté and Manfila Kanté. As many of his relatives, he began as a balafon player and eventually picked up the guitar. He wears his mother's name Jekorya in front of his own to distinguish him from his relatives "Djessou" Mory Kante, also a guitarist, and the other very famous Mory Kante.
