Applause Series Event - SOUNDS OF THE KORA
Agawam Senior Center (954 Main St, Agawam, MA 01001, Agawam MA)
Aural Explorations of a West African Harp.
Sean Gaskell presents a performance and educational demonstration of the kora - an ancient 21-stringed harp from West Africa - featuring traditional songs of the kora's musical repertoire. These songs of war, hardship, love and loss, present the history and fabric of Mande society, from which the instrument originates. http://www.agawam.ma.us/calendar.aspx?EID=775" target="_blank">http://www.agawam.ma.us/calendar.aspx?EID=775
