Since 1984 I am doing intensively Kora studies. I have traveled several times to West Africa and have established contacts and made friends with Mandinka Kora musicians.
Besides the Kora I am interested in a couple of other string instruments from West- and North-Africa, Madagascar and the Orient:
Donso Ngoni, Ngoni (Konting), Valiha, Maruvani, Kabosy, Sentir, Rababa, Saz, Tar, Vina, Zheng, Mvet.
Some of these instruments I also play as a member of the World Music Ensembles
(Afro-Oriental Jazz) and
(Persian Sufi Music) and
(Kora Duo with guest musicians).
