West African Kora Concert with Sean Gaskell
The West African Kora is a 21 string harp 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.
Sean Gaskell studied with master Kora players Malamini Jobarteh and Moriba Kuyateh from the Gambia. He presents Kora concerts all over the country.
This program is presented by the Friends of the Medford Public Library.
