Music of the West African Kora
May 14 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Musician Sean Gaskell is performing at the Vermillion Public Library! This concert includes an informative presentation on the Kora, a 21-string harp native to the Mande people of West Africa. He will include traditional songs that are the heart and soul of the Kora’s musical structure, as well as some of his own personal compositions.

Space is limited, so reserve or pick up your free ticket at the circulation desk as soon as possible!

The performance will take place at the Vermillion Public Library on Tuesday, May 14th at 7:00 pm. This event is free and open to the public.

The Kora is native to the Mande peoples who live within the countries of Gambia, Senegal, Mali, Guinea, and Guinea Bissau. The music is traditionally played by oral and musical historians known as Griots (Gree-ohs). The Kora is a melodic and seemingly peaceful instrument, which is somewhat contrary to its musical repertoire. Many songs tell ancient stories of war and hardship, while others praise people of high political status and those who helped expand the Mande Empire. While the Kora is only 300 years old, some commonly played songs can be traced back 800 years to the Mande empires’ founding. Gaskell has studied extensively under the instruction of Malamini Jobarteh and Moriba Kuyateh of Brikama, The Gambia, and Kane Mathis of Brooklyn, NY. Gaskell has been featured at numerous festivals in the US, Gambia, and Senegal.
