About Jaliya Camp and our mission

Jaliya is mandinka and means “The art of the Jali”,  which is about bringing pleasure and peace to people - be it through music, singing, dancing, storytelling, counselling, mediating in times of conflicts or to influence those with power to make a change.

To create understanding and awareness and bring people together are some of the most important missions for a Jali, and for Sousou & Maher Cissoko’s Jaliya Camp. 

The vision for Jaliya Camp is to be a platform for cultural exchange and a meeting place for people from all over the world to exchange ideas and create together. 

Jaliya Camp is not a hotel but a creative space and our second home. Every guest is special to us and an important part of the development of Jaliya Camp. By joining us you become a very important part of Jaliya Camp and all what it stands for.
