Kora maestro takes it to another level

Dawda Jobarteh's second release on Sterns Music is a worthy follow-up to 2011's ground-breaking Northern Light Gambian Night.

As the grandson of Alhaji Bai Konte and son of Amadou Bansang, Dawda is at the epicentre of Gambia’s musical aristocracy. He is also known for creating an intense contemporary vision of an ancient tradition.

Transitional Times again sees Dawda meld the contemporary with the traditional in equal measure. Either reworking a jazz standard or using guitar effect pedals,

Dawda makes both the kora and the music of his heritage current and vital.

Sama Kebbalu by Dawda Jobarteh taken from Northern Light Gambian Night

Taking his musical training from a Mande griot upbringing, Dawda Jobarteh creates an intense contemporary vision of an ancient tradition. With the support of long-term friends and band members, Preben Carlsen on guitar, Nana Osibio on bass and Salieu Dibba on percussion and including some deeply personal statements Dawda weaves his distinctive kora playing through modern musical landscapes. Jobarteh's musical heritage carries considerable weight. His grandfather was Alhaji Bai Konte, the first kora player to take the instrument to the US, Dawda's father is kora player Amadou Bansang Jobarteh and his uncles Malamini Jobarteh and Dembo Konte together 26 years ago recorded the seminal kora album Jaliya for Sterns Music.
