Jali Bakary Konteh is a Kora-player and griot, resident of Poplar and part of Gambia’s historic tradition of musician, historian and social chronicler. His Great Gambian Griot project unites him with Pa Bobo Jobarteh, also on the 21-stringed African harp, for beautiful historic and personal interpretations of Mandinka heritage and culture.
