A crowning moment for Gambia’s King of the Kora

Dr Nick Maurice addresses the assembled guests at the coronation of the King of KoraDr Nick Maurice addresses the assembled guests at the coronation of the King of Kora Nick Maurice, director of the Marlborough Brandt Group, has crowned the Gambian Kora player “King of Kora” in a ceremony in Bristol attended by 400 Africans from all over the UK.

The kora is the traditional 21 stringed tradition West African instrument made from a gourd covered in goat skin.  Jaliba Kuyateh is recognised by Africans throughout the world as the finest kora player.

He has played all over Europe, in the USA and throughout the UK in some of the leading concert venues and  is currently on a UK tour and the Gambian community in the UK took this opportunity to crown Jaliba King of Kora.

In a letter to Dr Nick inviting him to undertake the coronation, it was stated that this was in recognition of the 32 years of development work by the Marlborough Brandt Group with their partners in Gunjur and The Gambia.
