Kora player in Manchester

While I was making my way across to the Manchester City Art Gallery to see the exhibition of West African Art, I saw these musicians busking in Piccadilly Gardens.

The instrument being played by the young man in the foreground is the Kora,  a guitar like traditional instrument from West Africa.

Quite appropriate!

  1. Same with me John. We only found out about it when we visited the Abbot Hall gallery (also a new discovery). Sometimes you don’t see something that’s staring you in the face! Glad you enjoyed it
