Quarantoon WIDE VERCNOCKE

Another musician that Lubiana is keen to highlight is Senegalese kora player Ablaye Cissoko and especially his album Le Griot Rouge. “There are four large families of kora players in West Africa. That is why you often come across players with the name Cissoko or Sissoko, sometimes with the same first name. Sometimes, this leads to confusion. (Laughs) Ablaye Cissoko is my all-time favourite kora player. He has set up a school for kora players in Saint-Louis that is open to all people to play the kora, both men and women. I will go to Senegal soon to record a video clip, but I will also be going to do a residence at Ablaye’s place to play the kora every day from ten to five. That will be intense.” To catch her breath after all those intense moments, Lubiana likes to watch Netflix. Two series she has enjoyed are the French series Lupin, the hit series with Omar Sy, and Call My Agent!. “When watching TV, I want to relax and not think too much about the issues of the world. (Laughs) In Call My Agent!, well-known actors and actresses play themselves, you get a bit of a look behind the scenes. For example, you see how Jean Dujardin plays a caveman, and how he cannot fall out of that role and sleeps outside in the garden at home. Or Cécile de France who is told she has to take botox after she turns forty. It’s also nice that a friend of mine, Stéfi Celma, plays in it. She also sings and is releasing her first EP this year.” “Other than that, I try not to spend too much time on a screen,” Lubiana explains. “Especially not to read the news. The media too often focus on negative things, while there are still so many great things happening every day. You have to give people hope that they can still change the world.” LUBIANA The single “Mamy Nianga” is out now. 31
