Courses overview

Kora (West African harp)

Mamadou Drame
MABO - Lycée Maria-Boodschap - Rue de la Braie 22, 1000 Bruxelles

Mamadou Drame teaches the kora, a West African harp comprising 21 strings, by using the songs that every kora player learns to play at the earliest age, such as Jarabi, Bani, Manssani Cisse, Salimou or Mali Sadjo.  Mamadou advances step by step, and new techniques or combinations are progressively taught and improvised, mostly by ear.  Through his lessons you will acquire an overview of the rich Mandinka West African culture.

The courses take place in groups, according to the level of the students.  With the help of the instructor, you can acquire a good instrument.

Mamadou Drame

Mamadou Drame belongs to a sixth generation of griots (storyteller-musicians who narrate tales).  He comes from Casamance, situated in the south of Senegal, where his father taught him to play the kora.   Later on, he moved to Dakar and studied at the Music Academy for four years; there he started to teach the kora.  Ever since living in Belgium, he has been a part of various projects, like his own band Medra-Jaly, the Seco duo (with Tister Ikomo), performing with Gueladio Ba or playing with jazz musicians like Chris Joris and Sal La Rocca.
