    Mehboob Nadeem and Jali Fily Cissokho come together for this unique collaboration for Asian Arts Agency as part of the ongoing World Lute encounters project. Widely acknowledged as one of the UK’s leading sitar player, Mehboob is born into a highly illustrious family of traditional musicians of the Agra Gharana. He is the grandson of the legendary Ustad Vilayat Hussain Khan (Pranpiya) and Gayan Samrat Ustad Azmat Hussain Khan (Dilrang). Virtuoso player, composer and griot (a praise singer), Jali Fily hails from Ziguinchor in the beautiful lush region of Casamance, Southern Senegal. He is one in a long line of prominent kora (21 string West African harp/lute) players who recount stories of Mande history through song and music passed down from generation to generation.
