Event Description:

Sean Gaskell will give a solo acoustic set on the kora, an ancient 21-stringed harp from West Africa. Gaskell plays traditional songs of the Mandinka people from Gambia, Senegal, Mali, Guinea and Guinea Bissau. Gaskell has studied extensively under Malamini Jobarteh and Moriba Kuyateh, both of Gambia, and he has performed the kora everywhere from the Kartong Festival in Gambia to the Northwest Folklife Festival in Seattle.
