Bristol Griot Jam Session, open to all singers, instrumentalists and spectators. A chance to play along with Moussa Kouyate, a renowned Kora player, a kind of African harp. It's more of a collective jam than an open mic, and requires sensitivity when not to play rather than brilliance. Improvised poetry works well. The job of the Griot is to build community and that's what we do in these sessions. Audience who don't play are most welcome and we ask for £8 to help cover an honorarium to Moussa, local legend, who lives hand to mouth. Please bring a mic stand and lead if you need it. We can use the house PA basic set up. I'll be your host and on other occasions it's Emmy the Harp and/or Bryn on guitar. David Mowat trumpeter.
