Sona Jobarteh is the first female Kora player to come from a west African Griot family. She is a modern-day pioneer in an ancient, male-dominated hereditary tradition that has been exclusively handed down from father to son for the past seven centuries. In this piece featuring African and Western instruments played side by side, paired together in likeness in a unique arrangement, she unfolds the ancient stories of Manding history.
