Josh Doughty – Kora | Lunchtime Concert

Date: Monday, 2nd March, 1.00-2.00pm
Location: The Lion Hotel, Shrewsbury
From West Wales to West Africa

From West Wales

to West Africa

The kora is a 21-string lute-bridge-harp used extensively in West Africa, which Josh learned to play under the Master player Toumani Diabate. Listen to this beautiful music and hear the extraordinary story of how he came to play the instrument.

Originally from Wales, Josh began playing the kora at eight years old. Combining traditional Mandinka rhythms with modern Western influences, from classical to folk, Josh’s style is both unique and impressively accomplished. His passion for and mastery of this complex and mesmerizing instrument has earned him a rightful place amongst the new generation of kora players.
