Kassa! is our West African drumming and dance group based in Sheffield.  Last November Kassa! played with guest performer Iya Sako - a master drummer from Wassolon, Guinea, West Africa. Iya Sako has become something of a legend in the UK. The quality of sound that he creates on his djembe is totally unique. When Iya starts playing at the beginning of a gig, everybody is completely blown away - then when you think it couldn't get any better, he turns up the notch again and again! Iya Sako is a pure village djembe player - the real thing. He seems completely viod of any ego and approaches his djembe with enormous respect and humility. See him soloing here with Kassa! at the DQ night club in Sheffield - Iya Sako's soloing just gets funkier and funkier throughout!
