Sean Gaskell Features the West African Kora
December 9, 2017 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM| Free
Sean Gaskell will perform on the Kora, an ancient 21-stringed harp from West Africa. Gaskell’s performances will feature traditional songs that are the heart and soul of the Kora’s musical repertoire, in addition to some of his own personal compositions. Gaskell has mesmerized audiences across the U.S. Gambia and Senegal with his heartrending performances. Gaskell studied the Kora under the instruction of Malamini Jobarteh and Moriba Kuyateh throughout multiple visits to Brikama, The Gambia.
