“Sona Jobarteh is Africa’s first female griot kora virtuoso, and also a fine singer and composer, blending traditional music, blues and Afropop to impressive effect” [Robin Denselow The Guardian].

The kora, a west African harp is traditionally played by male griots, or hereditary musicians, and never by women. Sona decided to change the rules. She stands as she plays, demonstrating elegant and intricate musicianship, is also a fine singer with a cool laid-back style, fronting a seasoned four man Afro Beat Group.
She has won over audiences all over the World with her captivating voice and catchy melodies bringing messages about the issues that she champions - cultural identity, gender, love and respect, whilst remaining utterly faithful to her Gambian heritage.
