Don’t tell me that you’re traipsing amongst those ruins even as we speak, coz personally I’m doing something far less taxing this evening – trying to unpick the intricacies of Regina Carter & Reverse Thread’s,”Artistya.” I say Malian jazz, you prove otherwise.
Helen Ikua Actually took that picture two weeks ago, when I was indeed traipsing through those ruins…
Ah, I can only live vicariously through you Kent. And not to interrupt your love of all things Greek or anything, but next stop Mali, mayhap? Send me a report on what you think of the Kora, tis the musical instrument of the gods I hear and one must simply not die before one takes a musical journey through Mali.
Helen Ikua Well, I just spent a pleasant hour learning about kora 🙂 (I didn’t learn how you form the plural, though – “kora” seems better to me than “koras”).
Yeah, one Kora, two Kora does seem somewhat more lingually agreeable. But seriously though, the Kora is my new find of the week and I just thought that I might take my liberties and infect a friend with my enthusiasm for West African music especially Malian music. 😀
