Korason are two musicians - Josh Doughty kora and Tim Short on guitar – united by their love and respect for the Manding music of West Africa. There’s nothing very new about the marriage of kora and guitar. It’s been producing wonders in West Africa for decades. But when two white Europeans from Wales decide to dedicate themselves to music inspired by the jaliya or hereditary bards of that region, drawing it away from its roots and remoulding it with a depth of engagement rarely seen outside Africa itself, then it’s time to listen and wonder at the way music travels and grows, birdlike, borderless and free.

A Kora and Guitar duo.
