Cool Instruments, Pt. 2

These are some of the instruments I’ve been exposed to recently. I realized that I’d heard them many times, but never knew what they looked like or how they are played. Anyway, check them out!

The kora is a stringed West African instrument that sounds like a mix between a classical guitar and a harp. We had a guest lecturer come into class and give us a mini concert, and I totally fell in love with the instrument. It’s so beautiful!

I have lots more of these cool instruments posts lined up, but trying to space them out a bit so that non-Ethno people don’t get too bored, haha. Until next time!
