Suntou is a kora player, percussionist, singer and composer from The Gambia. Born a griot in the 700-year old tradition unique to the Mandinka people. Suntou has a unique societal role as oral historian whilst transmitting and preserving a people’s culture through the generations in song, music and poetry. His musical abilities are outstanding and he is an in-demand and charismatic performer. 

“Suntou Susso’s music brings nothing but good vibes as it combines the rich, traditional sound of his West-African Mandinka culture with Afro funk and soul”  Songlines ★★★★

This is part of the Tinners Moon Festival 2023. See for more about all of the events. All tickets at

* We usually have three ticket prices – please pay what you can. If you can pay the full price, that’s great. If choosing a cheaper ticket allows you to come to more things, then please do! Ticket receipts are split between the artists (it’s usually their livelihood!) and the arts centre (keeps the place going). Except on the rare occasions when we have a sellout gig on our hands, it’s always better to have someone here in the audience than an empty seat, so genuinely, please pay whatever you can.

See Access, Tickets & Finding Us for more about why there are three ticket prices, plus other useful info about coming to events at Ashburton Arts Centre: getting here, parking, loos, PA tickets, etc.
