Kora and Mbira with Djole and Spirit Gate

Here is a set of songs built around the kora and mbira. Both are traditional and magical instruments used for passing along wisdom, stories and healing in their respective cultures in Africa. The kora is a 21 string West African harp/lute. The mbira a South African thumb piano. We blended modern instruments along with them and created a varied sound and sensibility.
These recordings were made in Victoria, BC a while back. I have been blessed to play with these wonderful musicians.

Doug Galbraith – kora
Niel Golden – tabla
Dean Samuels – mbira
Chris Bertin – cajon and handpan
Joby Baker – electric bass and percussion

A good set for hanging out around the house, doing dishes or driving around
