Sona is the first female kora virtuoso to come from a prestigious west African Griot family. She is a modern pioneer in an ancient, male-dominated hereditary tradition that has been historically and exclusively handed down from father to son for the past seven centuries. Until now. A composer, producer, educator and multi-instrumentalist, Sona has an effortless ability to blend musical styles and uses her innovative stance to talk about cultural identity, gender, love, and respect whilst still adhering to and rooting herself firmly in her traditional cultural heritage. Sona represents her tradition in a way that is easily accessible to her audiences from around the world, who are drawn in by her captivating voice, strong rhythms, and addictive melodies.
