Sean Gaskell plays the West African Kora

Saturday, Mar 2, 2013 8:00p
The Matrix Coffeehouse Chehalis, WA

Sean Gaskell plays traditional music of the Mandinka people on the 21 string West African Kora. The music is traditionally played by Griots (Gree-ohs, oral/musical historians) from Gambia, Senegal, Mali, Guinea, and Guinea Bissau. While the Kora is
only 300 years old, some of the songs date back as many as 800 years. Gaskell, an Olympia resident, has studied extensively under the instruction of Malamini
Jobarteh and Moriba Kuyateh, both of Brikama, The Gambia.
