The Kora Band says
The Kora Band, an ensemble which integrates the uniquely entrancing timbre of the kora, a traditional 21-string harp from West Africa, into a jazz context, presents their third album "New Cities," on Whirlwind Recordings. The new album presents a suite by pianist and bandleader Andrew Oliver commissioned by the 2012 Chamber Music America New Jazz Works program. The material explores the intersection between contemporary jazz and one of its main ancestors in west African Mandinka music, exploring the boundaries between these two musical cultures and honoring the jazz tradition of combining disparate musical elements into a vibrant and coherent whole.
