There are many ways to innovate. Through the lyrics, the instrumentation, the way I play the kora. This is what I do. On my new album I don’t play the kora in the usual way. Sometimes I take it more towards the guitar, sometimes more towards percussion. It’s only a light change, but the essence of the music stays within the boundaries of the tradition. It’s ancient, from the 13th century.
