Based in New Orleans, the music of Kora Konnection is an exotic blend of West African Mandinka music and American Jazz. Kora Konnection is led by Morikeba Kouyate, a griot (oral historian) and kora (African harp) master from Senegal. Kora Konnection's music has been described as powerful, spiritual, and unifying, bridging the cultures of two continents and eight centuries. We have excited audiences with performances at major musical events, including the Voodoo Experience Festival, New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, Congo Square New World Rhythms Festival, French Quarter Festival, Festival International de Louisiane, and International Festival Houston. Kora Konnection's mission is to preserve and share the connection between West African Mandinka music and jazz that has been richly intertwined in American heritage for the past 300 years. Kora Konnection wants to share its unique sound of African roots and American Jazz with the world.
