of noise and confusion
and into a place
of peace and tranquility
while listening to this CD.”

When I began learning the Kora more than 25 years ago, I was warned by an elder that it would take me 5 years to understand the basics of the instrument. It took me much longer. For me, playing the Kora began as a meditative practice. I wanted to play and sing in a way my ancestors might have.

I could never have dreamed that my simple desire to connect with an ancestral lineage would one day have me touring the world.

Ancestral Strings Acoustic Kora is a chapter in a saga begun decades ago. If you’d like, you can DOWNLOAD the music at Amazon.com or ORDER the physical CD from Amazon.com as well. Thank you for taking the time to visit this page.
