Kora tuning images

– KORA  SILABA TUNING, F KEY

The basic scale on the kora, called Silaba, in the standard tonality of tuning, key o F.

This tuning, create a F major scale on the kora.

Silaba-F-Engl

– KORA SILABA TUNING, E KEY

Basing on the previous scheme or image (“Silaba F key”) you can tune your kora in every major european scale, such as E, D, C and so on.

Simply, calculate the tone and semitone difference.

For examples, from F to E there is a semitone of difference.

So, tu tune our kora in Silaba scale, we move down every string of the kora tuned in silaba F key of half a tone.

The same reasoning is valid for every scale…
