Garver Events presents Africa’s first female Griot Kora virtuoso and singer, Sona Jobarteh, in partnership with Sessions at McPike Park. She creates a fine blend of traditional music, blues and Afropop. Coming from a revered dynasty of West African Griots, Sona plays the Kora, an African harp; taught primarily by her father Sanjally Jobarteh since 4. Additionally she studied composition at London's Royal College of Music bringing a uniqueness that has attracted 19 million YouTube views of "The Gambia."
