Experience the music of West Africa as Sean Gaskell performs traditional songs on the Kora, an ancient 21-stringed harp native to the Mande people who live within the countries of Gambia, Senegal, Mali, Guinea, and Guinea Bissau. The Kora is a very melodic and seemingly peaceful instrument, which is contrary to its musical repertoire. Many songs tell ancient stories of war and hardship, while others praise people of high political status and those who helped expand the Mande empire.
