"For the last few years, Diabel Cissokho has played in his family's band Bannaya and alongside some of Africa's greatest talents. Now his time has come, and Cissokho presents Kanabory Siyama ('Don't Run from Your Ethnicity'), recorded with a cast of superb musicians in Dakar and London. With a soulful sound of mesmeric Manding melodies, rooted in the musical traditions of Senegal and Mali, Cissokho's original songs express his thoughts on life, family and the hardships and afflictions suffered across the world. Producer Justin Adams described his music as, 'Groove, melody and soul, and those voices hitting you like an Atlantic wave, it's irresistible.'"
