Momi Maiga & Ibou Cissokho (Senegal)

A young kora master

At just 26 years old, Momi Maiga is one of the new masters of the West African harp. He is a skilled vocalist and a composer who blends his music with jazz, flamenco, and hints of European classical music. Raised in the Casamance region in southern Senegal, Maiga hails from the renowned Cissokho family of musicians and was nurtured in their rich musical traditions. He started playing the kora at the age of six, showcasing rare talent. Now based in Girona, Maiga has made a name for himself in Spain, Belgium, and France. In late 2022, he released his debut album, "Nio," which was followed by concerts all over Europe.

In october, just in time for the festival, he will present his second album, "Kairo," whose title means "peace" in Mandinka, his mother tongue. During the concert at Oslo World, he will be joined by his cousin, Ibou Cissokho.
