Music post of the week: Kora Jazz Trio

Just noticed this post on Maneno which inspired me to post some of the Kora Jazz Trio’s work here. They’re a group from West Africa (Senegal and Guinea) who fuse West African percussion and the Kora (string instrument constructed from a large gourd) with the improvisational aspects of jazz, or as Christian Pegand describes them, “a dialogue between the griot and the bluenote”.
