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 Kakilambe (Afro-Oriental Jazz) and Ahura (Persian Sufi Music) and Kora Jaliya (Kora Duo with guest musicians).

other projects:
