Africa and music. Sona Jobarteh and Kaja Bryx


Sona Jobarteh is the first female Kora virtuoso to come from a prestigious west African Griot family. Breaking away from tradition, she is a modern day pioneer in an ancient, male-dominated hereditary tradition that has been exclusively handed down from father to son for the past seven centuries. Also a composer, producer and multi-instrumentalists, Sona is one of the most exciting new talents from the West African Griot tradition to hit the stage in recent years. Sona has an effortless ability to blend musical styles and uses her innovative stance to talk about issues to do with cultural identity, gender, love and respect whilst still adhering to and rooting herself firmly in her traditional cultural heritage. Sona represents her tradition in a way that is easily accessible to her audiences from around the world, who are drawn in by her captivating voice, strong rhythms and catchy melodies.  From Sona Jobarteh website: http://www.sonajobarteh.com/
