A one-day event celebrating our Mande programme with a headline concert from world-renowned Malian kora player Ballaké Sissoko.

Exactly 50 years ago in 1972, the father of Ballake Sissoko, Djelimady Sissoko attended the first ever conference of what was then known as Manding Studies here at SOAS. We feel extremely privileged to welcome Ballake Sissoko to showcase his musical heritage and practice as we gather to celebrate.

In collaboration with SOAS Festival of Ideas
