Summary
The West African kora is a 21 string harp that is native to the Mandinka people of Gambia, Senegal, Mali, Guinea and Guinea Bissau. It dates back 300 years, although some of the music comes from the middle 13th century around the founding of the Mandinka empire. Sean Gaskell has studied the instrument with master kora players Malamini Jobarteh and Moriba Kuyateh from the Gambia over the course of multiple visits. Mr. Gaskell will play songs on the instrument and also deliver the history and culture associated with it
