Sona Jobarteh is not only a fantastic singer, but also the first female virtuoso on the kora, a traditional West African string instrument. This makes her a pioneer in a tradition that has been passed on only from father to son for the past seven centuries!

Jobarteh studied at the Royal College of Music as well as at the Purcell School of Music in London before returning to Afrika. This is how she developed her mix of blues, afro-pop and traditional music. In a live setting, Jaborteh is accompanied by four musicians.

One refreshment is included in the ticket price.

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.
