Master drummer and musician Ibrahimasory Fofana, "Soriba," is from the Susu tribe of people who reside on the coastal region of Guinea, Conakry, in West Africa. He was raised in this vibrant city of music and dance where his love for traditional music began at a young age. In 2009, Soriba arrived in the U.S. and began teaching and performing traditional music of Guinea in schools, festivals and in workshops nationwide. He is the director of MORIA, West African Dance & Drum Ensemble in New Mexico, and he will be sharing the sweet melodies of the stringed N'goni, traditional songs and artistic culture of his beloved homeland during his solo library concerts.
