    Name: Sona Jobarteh at The ArtsCenter
    Date: October 19, 2018
    Time: 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM EDT
    Event Description:
    Sona Jobarteh is a pioneer in the ancient male-dominated hereditary Griot tradition of Africa, a tradition that has been exclusively handed down from father to son for the past seven centuries. Jobarteh defies convention as the first female Kora virtuoso to come from a legendary west African Griot lineage famous for its Kora masters, including her grandfather Amadu Bansang Jobarteh and her cousin Toumani Diabaté. Renowned for her skill as an instrumentalist, distinctive voice, infectious melodies and onstage grace, Jobarteh’s unique ability to touch audiences from all backgrounds and cultures has led her to international success.
