Youssoupha Sidibe is a Senegalese West African Kora (African Harp) player. Throw out all your ideas of what a harpist is, Youssoupha breaks out of traditional Kora styles many hundreds of years old, still predominant in Kora players, to create a new style blending aspects of Reggae, and western music creating a new style that has never been heard before.
