In earlier times when kings ruled West Africa, the kora was the instrument which accompanied the royal storytellers. Now that the kings are dead or in early retirement we have decided to sit the kora on the empty throne and to let it play with a joyful band of many colours.

The first and brand new CD of King Kora has been recorded last summer for a big part on alp Chemeuille in the Swiss mountains where Lamin Jobarteh, Roger Greipl and Dan Suter (foto) spent three weeks together. Aboard from Babylon-Town, in -the middle of the most wonderful mountain-world, they built their minimalistic hightek studio into an alpine cowboy hut and started to work.
