Jalikebba Prepares to Release International Acoustic CD

Friday, November 24, 2017

One of Gambia’s sensational Kora players and his Sutura band is preparing an international acoustic CD that will be released soon.

Jalikebba is one of the outstanding Gambian musicians who is making waves in Europe. He just ended his Europe tour with performances in Germany, Belgium, Poland, France, Holland and Austria.

“I am currently busy with this CD and in two month time, I will be in Belgium where I will attend The Gambia Roots Festival in Oostende to promote Gambian culture,” Jalikebba told our entertainment reporter.

The Mandinaba based Kora star said in Europe it was easy to be part of festivals but to play in cafés, one needs to be well connected.

“Through my Kora melodies, I sell Gambia’s name and hospitality which attracts the attention of many tourists to come to the country for holidays.”

He said during his Europe tour, he performed at the People Festival which is one of the biggest festivals in Belgium and also performed in Vienna –Austria- at the African Festival.
