On June 25th at 6:00pm, Sean Gaskell will give a performance and educational demonstration on the Kora, an ancient 21-stringed harp from West Africa. He will feature traditional songs that are the heart and soul of the Kora’s musical repertoire, in addition to some of his own personal compositions.
Gaskell has studied extensively under the instruction of Malamini Jobarteh and Moriba Kuyateh, both of Brikama, Gambia. Gaskell has been featured at numerous festivals in the United States, Gambia, and Senegal.
