Medium Malian Kora - 17"

In African history, the Mandinka kora served as a way for historians, genealogists and storytellers to pass their stories and past onto their descendants. African kings would have a kora player to not only entertain them, but to pass down their history to the next generation. Kora players were not only musicians but oral historians, and their place was highly valued in griot families. With a sound that is similar to a lute and a guitar combined, it provides the sounds of Africa everyone can enjoy.
