World Kora Trio On Tour


Eric Longsworth, Chérif Soumano & Jean-Luc Di Fraya

On tour in North America from February 20 to March 2, 2014.

World Kora Trio…

The colors of African music embodied by the kora(Chérif) resonate with WKT photothe original jazz and folk compositions of the electric cellist (Eric). The percussionist (Jean-Luc), with his celestial voice, impels the trio towards wide open spaces, worldwide, as in music of the world. Far from “conceptual”, their dialogue is playful, dynamic, and effervescent, illustrating beyond doubt that music is a universal language that defies borders. A rare musical proposition: world music in the truest sense.
