Meet Dawda and the amazing kora - a traditional string instrument from Gambia that is hundreds of years old. But to Dawda, the kora is new every day. He mixes his musical experience from Gambia, from jazz and rock, from Denmark and Scandinavia where he lives, from afro, pop and folk music. Then he channels his music through this special instrument while he applies multiple different electronic effects.
Actually, Dawda started learning to play percussion, and only as an almost-adult did he switch to the kora with the crisp yet soft sound - what a luck for us.
