2002 release. "The Kora belongs to the family of West African bridge harps with calabash resonators that are found in the savannah belt extending from the Atlantic Ocean to Mali. Many of these instruments are hunter's harps. In Mali, people say that the sound of the Koracarries one's thoughts far away. The feeling lies at the heart of Jeliya, the music of the jeli (griots). There is no better exponent of this instrument than Jeli Moussa Sissoko."
