Fine Handmade Koras
We make and sell fine handmade koras, both online and from our shop in Brighton, UK. Les Shepard has been making koras for almost thirty years, and since then has been joined in making by Jali Mbye, himself a master kora player from the Gambia.
For ten years we have been supplying koras to the SOAS kora school. Our instruments are used by many famous players, including:
Sekou Keita, Jally Kebba Souso, Madou Cissokho, Sura Souso. Jabil, Cissokho, Jali Baka Conté, Dawda Jobarteh, Jali Lamin Sano and Fili Cissokho.
