Machine Head Kora from Dakar, Sengal
large product photo   Kora Evo 3

African musical instruments are under development. Now the Kora gets larger, and metal tuning machines are used. Built by Nick Hall and Sory in Dakar, Senegal, this evo3 Kora arrived in 2006.

140 cm long, metal tuning machines, stings like kora evo2. A real beast. We spent lots of time together. There is a studio recording to be heard on youtube, here is the link (but I am not playing african music as such, just my own): plus you will see some film cutting skills worth an Oscar! Listen here!
