Concert (Kracum Performance Hall)

Sat., Sept. 15   7:00    Guest Artist Concert: Sona Jobarteh

Renowned vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, and composer Sona Jobarteh is the first female Kora (21-stringed African harp) virtuoso to come from a west African Griot family. Breaking away from tradition, she is a pioneer in an ancient male-dominated hereditary tradition that has been exclusively handed down from father to son for the past seven centuries. Reputed for her skill as an instrumentalist, distinctive voice, infectious melodies and her grace onstage, Sona has rapidly risen to international success following the release of her critically acclaimed album “Fasiya” (Heritage) in 2011.
