Sean Gaskell plays the West African Kora (Harp)

Friday, Jan 25, 2013 9:00p
Sweet Grapes Wine Bar New York, NY

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, a
resident of Seattle, has studied extensively under the instruction of Malamini
Jobarteh and Moriba Kuyateh, both of Brikama, The Gambia.
