Aly Cisse was born in Guinea Conakry, West Africa. He grew up learning his country’s native dances, the kora, and drums. When Aly was fifteen, he moved to France and began performing as an acrobat, dancer, and drummer in Circus Boabab (http://www.cultureunplugged.com/documentary/watch-online/filmedia/play/5065/Circus-Baobab).
