Africa in Olympia

Images from a very cool show last weekend at the Olympia Ballroom in Washington’s capital city. Two kora (west African harp) players with different approaches: traditional music by Sean Gaskell and electronics-enhanced kora sounds by Kane Mathis. Rounding out the evening was a SeattlePortland-based rock/African group called Dusu Mali Band.

    Whoops – sorry, I was geographically challenged when I wrote that. Fixed now. And I’m pretty sure everyone else had a great time having you in Olympia as well — thanks for visiting!

  3. Actually we’re from Portland, Oregon!

    Had a great time in Olympia and can’t wait to return!
