Kora (instrument)
The kora is a 21-string lute-bridge-harp used extensively in West Africa.[1]Contents1 Description 2 History 3 Scores 4 Bibliography 5 Selected discography5.1 African composers (oral tradition) 5.2 Western composers (written music)6 Notable kora players 7 See also 8 References 9 External linksDescription[edit] A kora is a Mandinka harp built from a large calabash cut in half and covered with cow skin to make a resonator with a long hardwood neck. The skin is supported by two handles that run under it. It supports a notched double free-standing bridge. It doesn't fit into any one category of musical instruments, but rather several, and must be classified as a "double-bridge-harp-lute". The strings run in two divided ranks, making it a double harp. They do not end in a soundboard but are held in notches on a bridge, making it a bridge harp
