Kora Beginner Course hosted by Kadialy Kouyate

Venue: Brunei Gallery Room: B104

Course Fee: £115 (Concessions £95)

The Mandinka kora is a unique instrument with 21 strings. It sounds a bit like a harp, but its intricate playing style is closer to flamenco guitar. Kadialy Kouyate comes from the south of Senegal and belongs to the great line of Kouyate griots. He is a gifted performer but also highly regarded as a kora teacher, regularly teaching under- & postgraduate courses at SOAS. This is a taster course for beginners – limited places! Instruments provided.

With Kadialy Kouyate.
