''THE AFRICAN KORA - JOURNEYS OF THE SUNWALKER''
Across between the many strings and treble gentility of a Celtic harp and the drone strings and percussive quality of an African banjo, the kora is an instrument native to Western Africa. Ravi has long been one of the elusive instrument's masters, and AFRICAN KORA: JOURNEYS OF THE SUNWALKER finds him and his kora delicately enthralling on this disc's 14 tracks. Most are traditional, a handful were written by Ravi, but all of the songs on AFRICAN KORA reveal a decidedly complex, layered, and gorgeous alternative to stricter Western musical structures. A must for fans not only of world styles but of adventurous, impeccably played music as well.
Solo performer: Ravi (kora, balafon, djembe, bells).
Reviewby Heather Phares
Ravi's African Kora: Journeys of the Sunwalker showcases the sounds of the kora, a West African harp/lute hybrid. Its graceful, evocative tones are similar to the Celtic harp, helping to make the kora a popular instrument in contemporary world music. African Kora: Journeys of the Sunwalker introduces this timeless style of music to a new audience.
