Soriba Kouyate : Bamana

This advert is located in and around Shaftesbury, London

Advert Description

Oxfam Bookshop Shaftesbury The Paris - Dakar connection has a long tradition, and it is high time the direction was reversed; not by the way of some sandy trail, but on untrammelled musical paths. As a wanderer between worlds, the musical adventurer Soriba Kouyaté has brought new sounds out of Dakar to Paris, and together with his fellow French musical compatriots, has transformed West African melodies and songs into what can be called jazz in the broadest sense of the word. Kouyaté’s instrument is the kora, the West African harp: 21 nylon strings and body out of a dried calabash (a large squash) covered with tanned calfskin - an instrument that has been unmistakably gaining ground in non-African music in the last years. The history of the kora dates back to the thirteenth century and the ancient kingdom of Mali. CD CONDITION: Case in very good condition. CD in very good condition no marks or scratches.
