I fell in love with the music of the Kora decades ago, during a summer spent in the lower Casamance. When I learned that quality lessons on the Kora were available, in a beautiful setting in the upper Casamance, I jumped at the chance to go. The Kora Workshop is as welcoming as it is beautiful, and the individualized lessons from Adam were invaluable in pushing me to a place where I felt I really could begin to play this extraordinary instrument. And, with help from Kath, Ansoumane and Kalagane, I returned to the village where it all began, and renewed old friendships. I would highly recommend a trip to Kafountine and the Kora Workshop to anyone interested in the music of the Kora. Adam is a natural teacher, as well as great musician and student of traditional kora repertoire. It is a long trip from New Mexico, USA, but I would love to return. Peggy Nelson
