Join us for a lively evening of West African music! Musician Sean Gaskell performs traditional songs on the Kora, a 21-string harp that he was introduced to during several visits to Gambia, West Africa. The kora was introduced 300 years ago, and is traditionally played by oral and musical historians known as Griots (Gree-ohs). Sean has been featured in several musical festivals in the US, Gambia, and Senegal.
