SautiKano

Available: 8th – 31st August 2022 & festival bookings.

SAUTIKANO – THE LIVE SHOW

A musical fusion with a core of experienced performers from across the world comprising:  Ivan Toolit lead vocals (Uganda), Njega Sohna- African drums (The Gambia), Seikou Sussou – Master Kora Player (The Gambia), Ben Somers – Double Bass (UK)  Liz Lenten – guitar and harmonies (UK).

Ivan was a young boy in a war-torn Uganda. The war eventually reached his town, resulting in his parents being killed when he was just 4 years, leaving Ivan to survive on the streets, on his own. SautiKano tells his story – through song, music and dance, describing the fears, loss, struggles, ingenuity, hopes, dreams and his travels half way around the planet in search of love, security and opportunity. 

This is a tale of displacement, resilience, survival, tragedy and the healing power of music…. 

‘….Their sound is original and energetic, mesmerising and hypnotic – bursting with traditional West and East African sounds with folky guitar and jazzy double bass, playing a key role in the overall uplifting vibe…..’  Scarlet Records LTD
