About

Kora virtuoso Sona Jobarteh has modernized the presentation of kora music by playing while standing, and singing with an electric Afropop band. Effortlessly blending different musical styles, Jobarteh uses her innovative stance to talk about cultural identity, gender, love, and respect, while still rooting herself firmly in her West African cultural heritage.
