Kora Communion 

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' 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. 

Through their music, they pay their respects to the great Mandinka traditions of West Africa

alongside new compositions of their own and have appeared at a number of UK festivals

including WOMAD, Shambala, Boomtown, Kaya and Llangollen Fringe.This is your event description. Use this space to provide a brief summary of the event, as well as any additional information so attendees know what's in store.
