Amadou Fall is a native to Senegal, West Africa and comes from a family of musicians; His father, Mamadou Fall was a guitarist who played with several well-known Senegalese musicians one being Baba Maal. Amadou is the one that brought the Kora to his family at the age of 10. The Kora which is a 21 stringed instrument of fishing line, is made from wood, Calabash (Gourd) and cow skin and can best be described as the African Harp. While he was growing up, Amadou's family lived near a city of Griots (West African story tellers and keepers of tradition). He often visited the house in which the Griots lived and there he was taught how to play a few songs on the Kora. Amadou fell deeply in love with the instrument and went back to his city and built himself one from scratch. He started his new journey of mastering the art of Kora playing from the little he had learned and the rest has been self-taught .
Amadou has been playing Kora for 20 years now and has performed with various artists such as Baba Maal, Fatou Lowbe, Ibrahim Ba, Djembe Rhythm and Irene Tassambendo and many more. He has played extensively on the African continent (Senegal, Mauritania, Congo, Burkina Faso, Mali, Togo, Benin, Ivory Coast and Nouadibou). He has also been sought out and played in other parts of the world such as France, Belgium, Italy, Hungary, England as well as the United States. Amadou has also participated in several recorded albums for music artists from around the globe.
Amadou Fall currently resides in California where he hopes to bring people from all walks of life together in peace with music from Africa, all through the breath-taking sounds of his Kora.
West African Kora
The sound of the Kora might remind Westerners of a guitar but the size and shape of the instrument are vastly different. It is traditionally described as an African harp that is played between the legs of the player in a sitting position. The body of the Kora is a hollow gourd covered with cow or antelope hide. Twenty-one strings are connected to the bottom of the gourd and stretched to the top of the long pole neck. The Kora is often played with other instruments but also has a sensory impact when played solo with a griot, or chanter.
