Kebba Sonko

I was born in The Gambia and I live in Stockholm, Sweden. Ever since I was a child I have been interested in listening to stories, dancing and playing drums. Therefore it was natural for me to work with West African culture, and that´s what I have been doing since I moved to Sweden in 1977.

I am a musician, I write and tell stories and I teach both children and adults in African dance and drums. I also perform with African dance and drums.

My aim as a culture worker

I try to spread West African culture, to reduce racial discrimination and to make people feel the joy in African music, dance and storytelling.
