AMONG the sights and sounds greeting Hollywood star Chris Pine in new Netflix film Outlaw King is a musician from Oxfordshire.

Jali Fily Cissokho, pictured above on the far left, can be seen playing the kora – an West African instrument which sounds similar to a harp – as Pine rides by in a scene from the medieval action movie.

Pine plays 14th Century Scottish monarch Robert The Bruce who leads a rebellion against the occupying English, with Oxford's own Florence Pugh also appearing in the film as the king's second wife – Elizabeth de Burgh.

Mr Cissokho, who has lived in Witney for more than 15 years after moving to the UK from Casamance in the south of Senegal, became involved with the project through friend and fellow musician Samba Sene.

He said: "The composer in Edinburgh decided he wanted some people playing music from Senegal in there and that's when Samba, who is also from Senegal, got in touch with me.

"We are both in the scene, with Samba on my right."

He added: "It was a very long, cold day shooting in a strange costume with a wig on. I had no idea if I was going to make it into the final film so it was a really nice surprise to hear my music and see myself in the final version. I also had a credit at the end of the film as well."

It is not his first time the musician has appeared on the big screen, performing in 2010 Bollywood adventure film Raavan.

He said: "It's been a long time between the two but its definitely something I'd like to do again."

Mr Cissokho has performed across the UK, including at WOMAD, Glastonbury and Larmer Tree Festivals, the Oxford Zodiac, the Oxford Water Festival and Modern Art Oxford.

Outlaw King is available to view on Netflix as well as in select theatres, including Oxford's Curzon cinema.
