About the Event

 

This concert is a communion between musicians and listeners in ancient and sacred spaces that

have been devoted to peace, mediation and harmony for centuries; Kora and guitar music that

will inspire and beguile you in some of Wales's most beautiful places of worship.

Wales-based duo Josh Doughty (kora) and Tim Short (guitar) were introduced to each other by

world-famous Ngoni player Bassekou Kouyaté at the festival du Niger in Segou, Mali, back in

2007. 

Widely recognised as one of the greatest non-African kora players, Josh was introduced to the

kora at the age of a young age when he was mentored by revered Malian kora maestro Toumani

Diabaté who continues to take a keen role in his development. Josh is in demand for his teaching

skills, and also played on Sampha's 2017 Mecury award-winning album "Process". Multi-

instrumentalist Tim has toured and recorded for over 30 years, playing with The Waterboys, Afro

Cluster, and Joe Driscoll and Seckou.
