Will Ridenour - Solo Kora. The Kora is a 21- or 22-stringed bridge-harp from West Africa. According to oral traditions, the kora originated with the Senegambian Mandinka of the Kabu Empire, which encompassed parts of present-day Guinea-Bissau, southern Senegal, and the Gambia. The strings of the kora are made of fishing line, and they resonate through a large, halved gourd stretched with a cow hide. Traditionally, the kora is played by Mandinka Jalis and Mande Jelis (“griots” in French) who are members of a special caste of society that work as musicians and oral historians. They are veritable walking libraries of information and history; artisans of speech and sound.
