Hear The Kora Band for free at Seattle’s City Hall Plaza on Fourth Avenue on Sept. 2.

From The Seattle Times:
Like a good cup of coffee, The Kora Band is a rich blend, combining traditional West African music with American jazz. Hear the quintet for free at noon Thursday at City Hall plaza, 600 Fourth Ave., Seattle. If it rains, the band will play in the lobby. The group’s Gambian namesake instrument, the kora, a harp guitar, is played by Seattleite Kane Mathis
