Jaliya V4 Full Version

Jaliya V4 Full Version currently features more than 120 Kora notations of traditional pieces with variations and improvisations played in the style of more than 30 Kora musicians from all Mande cultural regions.

In 20 years of Kora studies I have transcribed many of the recordings listed in the Kora Discography as well as private performances of many Kora Fola I recorded in West Africa. Other users of Jaliya V4 Full Version have also provided their notations for the Kora Jaliya archive. Now this collection of tunes and playing styles has grown to the most complete library of written Kora music to be found in the world (if there is another one ...) and it is still growing.

Jaliya V4 Full Version also contains more than 300 notations of traditional Malinke and other Westafrican rhythms for Percussion Ensembles with Djembe, Kenkeni, Sangpan, Dundun, Dundunba. Here you find an unsurpassed collection of original drum music !

Jaliya V4 Percussion Edition is available for Euro 50 for private usage as a separate package without the Kora library.
Pay with PayPal !

Jaliya V4 Full Version further contains notations and original sounds of traditional music for several Balafons, Donso Ngoni, Burkina Goni, Marovany, Valiha, Mvet.
Later there will be separate Jaliya Exotic Editions for these instruments, in sha' allah !

Jaliya V4 Complete Edition is available for Euro 100 for private usage. All notations for all instruments in one package.
Pay with PayPal !

What will happen after you buy with Paypal ?
