Jaliba Kuyateh, The Gambias foremost musician, master Kora player, griot and cultural ambassador was our studio guest today on Panafrica show. The music of Jaliba and kumareh band is a fantastic blend of traditional Kora and modern beats ( a Kora, a Balafon, a drum set, percussions, a trumpet, bass guitar, tama and talking drums, and a set of four local drums) that is very lively, touching and entertaining.
Jaliba Kuyateh spoke to Panafrica on his music, background, the griot tradition and his humanitarian work in the Gambia.
