DESCRIPTION

The kora (CORE-uh) is an ancient Mande 21 string harp that sounds like a mix between a traditional harp and a classical guitar, played throughout western Africa. This version has the traditional tuning method with hardened leather rings that slide up and down the neck for tension adjustment. The instrument consists of a large half calabash gourd body, covered with goat or calf skin, with a notched bridge, hand posts, and 20-22 fish-line strings. It is played by holding the instrument in both hands by the hand posts and plucking the strings with thumbs and fingers. This ring-tuned kora is covered by our satisfaction guarantee, and features:

  • Built to musician-grade standards by expert craftsmen in Mali or Guinea using traditional methods
  • Thick calabash gourd body, 19-21" wide, 8-9" deep, covered with thick goat skin
  • 21 fish-line strings attached with metal ring, notched bridge, and adjustable leather tuning rings
  • Thick hardwood neck extending 32" out from gourd, solid wood hand posts and bridge supports
  • Being a stringed instrument, this kora will require tuning after shipping
  • Imported, African-made product from Africa Heartwood Project
