KORA CULTURE

in #dtube2 years ago (edited)


There is this special place in my home area of Upstate New York.
It’s magical in that its in the middle of literally know where of the Foothills of the Catskills Mountain range.
It is an old small church that has been converted into a community event center in a place called East Meredith. The West Kortright Center has been celebrating the Arts and Life since 1975 and is a true Gem of a location.
This night was an amazing band all the way from Gambia.... Sona Jobarteh brought her West African Kora music and a humble full power spirit!
Come check a glimpse of the night and see some sweet dance moves from Mr. P.

Wow, she's talented. Female Kora players are super rare! It was (is?) slightly taboo actually since it's kind of a man's job to play Kora. You traditionally also have to come from a Kora playing family to play it. Which is why she's even more impressive. She'd have had to learn from childhood to be that good.

You are a kind, sweet, and caring man. Never let anyone tell you otherwise. I truly appreciate your sensibility.

And interesting. She never mentioned the part of Kora being mostly for men. She talked a lot about history, tradition and years and years of learning!!
Love you @adetorrent
