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.
