Sona Jobarteh performed in Weimar on invitation of the University of Music FRANZ LISZT Weimar and its UNESCO Chair of Transcultural Music Studies (TMS). The TMS Chair regularly invites artists to bring the musicology students into contact with various musical cultures for inspiration and exchange.
Sona Jobarteh is the first female Kora virtuoso to come from a west African Griot family. The Kora is one of the most important instruments belonging to the Manding peoples of West Africa (Gambia, Senegal, Mali, Guinea and Guinea-Bissau). It belongs exclusively to griot families, and usually only men who are born into these families have the right to take up the instrument professionally. Sona Jobarteh combines various genres of African Music and western musical elements.
Sonah Jobarteh - Acoustic Guitar/ Kora/ Vocals
Kari Bannermann - Acoustic Guitar
Andi McLean - Electric Bass/ BVs
Mouhamadou Sarr - Djembe/ Congas/ Calabash/ BVs
Recorded on 1 July 2015 at the "mon ami", Weimar.

  • I'm from Philippines, I was searching to a music to listen, and I came across into this video and when the music starts I closed my eyes and this music brings me into imagination like im walking in the land of africa watching their beautiful culture. Her music touches my soul. It's wonderful feeling while listening to her song, I dont understand the song but I find it beautiful. And by the way she is so beautiful and talented.

  • Honestly, I listen to this video whenever I need life restored in me and it works every time. From start to finish, this music doesn't only have soul but I believe this music is literally soul itself being communicated. This sound is connected to all of our roots. We all speak this language and if we open up to it, it can be incredibly healing. Take care and be kind to others. 🦋

  • No toco ningún instrumento, menos canto. Pero para escuchar buena música no necesariamente se debe tener tal conocimiento. Soy un apasionado por la musica ancestral, étnica, pagana etc. me encanta todos los sonidos y ritmos que transportan a nuestra escencia, a aquella naturaleza de la cual provenimos y escuchando a Sona Jobarteh & Band, me siento transportado en el tiempo y transformado a nuestros orígenes. MIL GRACIAS POR HACER ESTE TIPO DE MÚSICA.

Bringing them honor and bringing such pleasure to our ears. It deeply touches my heart. Music speaks to our hearts and souls. Thank you Sona! May God richly bless you and all of your music family. Bring praises to our Lord.
