The Kora vs The Lute

This week you should spend some time learning the difference between the beautiful Kora (harp) instrument and the African lute(s). The latter is a predecessor to the guitar. After you become familiar with the differences, decide which instrument you want to play. Feel free to play both.

Laemouahuma Daniel Jatta plays the akonting, an African instrument that may be a precursor to the banjo.
