Malang Jobarteh, kora: Dialogues
Malang Jobarteh is a master of the kora, a 21-stringed West African harp and instrument of choice for griots, storytellers who chronicle the history and traditions of West Africa. The program features original compositions, arrangements of Western classical pieces and traditional West African music in a boundary-defying recital that unifies these seemingly disparate musical traditions. Opening remarks and commentary by Salieu Suso.
The concert will be followed by a reception featuring local wines and appetizers by Berber Street Food.
This concert is part of Analogs, EXTENSITY’s inaugural season. Analogs explores unexpected intersections between Western classical music and underrepresented, overlooked and new voices.
