Among kora players, it is routine to borrow melodies, quote passages, ornament kumbengo (accompaniment patterns), and to imitate styles of other kora players as a way to pay homage to them, to teachers, and to fellow musical comrades. This original piece is my salute to Diali Keba Cissokho. Diali's father nicknamed him Chourno after his own father and all three are kora players.
