Pa Bobo Jaboreth

Bobo Jobarteh teaches children in the Gambia the ancient and traditional instrument of the kora. Constructed using 21 fishing lines,
it takes hours of study and practice – and expertise passed on by the music master. Pa Bobo is very active in the local community, bringing music into the lives of local and also worldwide students who
sometimes visit for kora lessons. It is a lifetime’s work to teach
the kora and the method has been handed down through
generation upon generation in the traditional way.
