Sean Gaskell features traditional songs on the 21 stringed West African kora!

The kora is native to the Mande peoples who live within the countries of Gambia, Senegal, Mali, Guinea and Guinea Bissau.  This music is traditionally played by oral and musical historians known as Griots.  Many of the songs performed on the kora tell ancient stories which are handed musically down through the generations.  Gaskell has studied extensively under the instruction of Malamini Jobareth and Moriba Kuyateh of Brikama, The Gambia, and Kane Mathis of Brooklyn, NY. Gaskell has been a featured performer at numerous music festivals in the US, Gambia and Senegal.
