ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Dialy, pronounced, ‘Gee-AH-lee’, means Storyteller in the West African language of Mandinka.

‘Dialy the Storyteller’ is a contemporary blend of Senegalese Folk and Americana, that captures the prayers and masterful kora (African Harp) playing of a West African storyteller, Boujou Badialy Cissoko.

Boujou Badialy Cissoko, was born in the village of Kazamasa, Senegal, West Africa, into a family of storytellers, who keep the musical tradition and beauty of Senegal alive…..

Dialy, is orchestrated with musical accompaniment by some of the world’s top recording artists, including such greats as the legendary percussionist Ms. Bobbye Hall (Joni Mitchell/Marvin Gaye), the bass playing of Ian Walker (K.D. Lang), Jon Osman on guitar (Paula Cole), Greg Ellis providing percussion (Vas), and Quinn on drums (Tracy Chapman).

After the passing of Boujou’s father, the legendary Kora player, Bakary Cissoko, Boujou and music producer Shannon Michael Terry traveled to Senegal to record the vocal performances of Boujou and his sisters, Fatu Cissoko and Dialy Sira
Cissoko. In this musical homage to their father, the sisters provided the essential feminine resonance that each story needed to complete the journey home.
