west african kora detailThe recipe for kora music: Take a large calabash gourd, dry it, put a large stick through it, stretch an animal skin over it, and add 21 strings or so. Then spend a lifetime learning to play it. Or…listen to this show and hear the magical fingers of some of the best kora players in the world, including Toumani Diabate, Mory Kante, Mamadou Diabate, Ballake Sissoko, and others.
