Sona Jobarteh is the first female kora virtuoso, breaking the West African griot tradition previously handed down from father to son. Here, Jobarteh introduces the region’s unique musical culture and distinctive instruments used exclusively by griots, and performs vocal extracts from traditional works. A question-and-answer session on Western African music is also included.
