(Italiana Spoken version, look down for english…)
Welcome to your first basic kora lesson: in this video, we will study the basic rhythm (“kumbengo”) of the song Kelefa Ba. Traditionally, to the novice is taught one of this two songs: Kelefa Ba or Bani. I chose to show you Kelefa Ba. Kelefa was a great hero to whom many songs were dedicated to creating a long epic that talks about his battles and his death.
This video is the improvement of my other previous videos and the result of my experience as a teacher. So I tried to be as exhaustive as possible.
