About Karamo Susso Karamo Susso is an international kora star. Growing up in a griot compound in Mali, he started playing kora as a tiny child, and was performing for large crowds before he was even big enough to hold the instrument up by himself. Fully immersed in the tradition, he learned from world-renowned players like his uncle Ballake Sissoko and Toumani Diabate. He studied and taught kora at the Institute Nationale des Arts in Bamako, Mali.
