    Sona Jobarteh performed in Weimar on invitation of the University of Music FRANZ LISZT Weimar and its UNESCO Chair of Transcultural Music Studies (TMS). The TMS Chair regularly invites artists to bring the musicology students into contact with various musical cultures for inspiration and exchange.

The Kora is one of the most important instruments belonging to the Manding peoples of West Africa (Gambia, Senegal, Mali, Guinea and Guinea-Bissau). It belongs exclusively to griot families, and usually only men who are born into these families have the right to take up the instrument professionally. Sona Jobarteh combines various genres of African Music and western musical elements.

    Sona Jobarteh's debut music video Gambia in celebration of the Golden Jubilee of Independence for the Gambia in 2015.

    This video features the traditional Mandinka Drum called the 'Seruba', an instrument no longer featured much in Gambian mainstream society. By featuring the drum in this song, Sona aims not only to resonate with the deep history of the Mandinka people, but also to boost and promote awareness of this instrument both in the Gambia and internationally.

  • Gambia - Sona Jobarteh

    10:31

    Sona Jobarteh es la primera virtuosa femenina de Kora que viene de una familia Griot de África Occidental. Rompiendo con la tradición, es una pionera en una antigua tradición hereditaria dominada por hombres que ha sido transmitida exclusivamente de padre a hijo durante los últimos siete siglos. Reona por su habilidad como instrumentista, voz distintiva, melodías adictivas y su gracia en el escenario, Sona ha subido rápidamente al éxito internacional tras el lanzamiento de su álbum aclamado por la crítica Fasiya (Heritage) en 2011.

    El Kora (un arpa africana de 21 cuerdas) es uno de los instrumentos más importantes de los pueblos Manding de África Occidental (Gambia, Senegal, Malí, Guinea y Guinea-Bissau). Pertenece exclusivamente a las familias griot (familias musicales hereditarias), y sólo aquellos que nacen en una de estas familias tienen derecho a tomar el instrumento profesionalmente. Sona, que nació en una de las cinco familias principales Griot, se ha convertido en la primera mujer en adoptar este instrumento profesionalmente en una tradición masculina que se remonta a más de siete siglos.

    Canciones:
    Gambia, Kemet y Jarabi, de Jona Jobarteh.

    Gambia, oficialmente República de la Gambia y anteriormente República Islámica de la Gambia, es una nación de África occidental. Se encuentra rodeada en su totalidad por Senegal, excepto en la desembocadura del río Gambia en el océano Atlántico. Su capital es Banjul, aunque la mayor ciudad del país es Serekunda. El país está situado en la ribera del río Gambia, que le da nombre al país, y que discurre por el centro del mismo con desembocadura en el océano Atlántico. El país tiene 10 300 km² de superficie1 y una población estimada de 1,7 millones de personas.
    Gambia comparte con el resto de naciones de África Occidental un pasado asociado al mercado de esclavos, que fue el factor clave para el emplazamiento y mantenimiento de una colonia en el río Gambia, primero mantenida por portugueses y más tarde por el Imperio Británico. El 18 de febrero de 1965, Gambia logró su independencia del Reino Unido y, el 24 de abril de 1970, se convirtió en una República dentro de la Mancomunidad de Naciones. Desde su independencia durante más de tres décadas, Gambia fue dirigida de una u otra forma por Dawda Jawara, bajo un gobierno democrático de partido dominante hasta que Jawara fue derrocado por un golpe militar en 1994. Tras el golpe, asumió la presidencia Yahya Jammeh, quien gobernaría autoritariamente el país hasta ser desbancado del poder tras su sorpresiva derrota electoral y la posterior intervención militar de la CEDEAO luego de que se negara a renunciar al gobierno. Tras la intervención, en enero de 2017, el ganador de las elecciones, Adama Barrow, asumió la presidencia.
    Es un país con unas tierras muy fértiles que han convertido la agricultura en uno de los elementos clave de su economía, junto con la pesca y el turismo. Aproximadamente la tercera parte de la población vive bajo el umbral internacional de la pobreza. Gambia posee unos de los Índice de Desarrollo Humano más bajos del mundo; con 0,441 se ubica en el puesto 175 de 188 países.

    Artista: Sona Jobarteh - Música: Mamamuso - Álbum: Fasiya - Ano: 2011
    Nascida em 1983 em Londres de um pai gambiano e mãe inglesa, Sona Jobarteh é a primeira mulher virtuosa Kora a vir de uma família Griot da África Ocidental. Rompendo com a tradição, ela é pioneira em uma antiga tradição hereditária dominada por homens que foi transmitida exclusivamente de pai para filho pelos últimos sete séculos. Sona é reconhecida por sua habilidade como instrumentista, voz distinta, melodias contagiantes e sua graça no palco.

    A Kora (uma harpa africana de 21 cordas) é um dos mais importantes instrumentos pertencentes aos povos Manding da África Ocidental (Gâmbia, Senegal, Mali, Guiné e Guiné-Bissau). Pertence exclusivamente a famílias griot (famílias musicais hereditárias), e somente aqueles que nascem em uma dessas famílias têm o direito de adotar o instrumento profissionalmente. Sona, que nasceu em uma das cinco principais famílias Griot, tornou-se a primeira mulher a adotar este instrumento profissionalmente em uma tradição masculina que remonta a mais de sete séculos.

    A família de Sona tem uma grande reputação pelos renomados mestres Kora, especialmente seu avô Amadu Bansang Jobarteh, que era um ícone na história cultural e musical de Gâmbia, e seu primo Toumani Diabaté, famoso por seu domínio do Kora.

    Sona e sua música têm a capacidade única de tocar o público de todas as origens e culturas.

    Artist: Sona Jobarteh - Music: Mamamuso - Album: Fasiya - Year: 2011
    Born in 1983 in London to a Gambian father and English mother, Sona Jobarteh is the first female Kora virtuoso to come from a west African Griot family. Breaking away from tradition, she is a pioneer in an ancient male-dominated hereditary tradition that has been exclusively handed down from father to son for the past seven centuries. Sona is recognized for her skill as an instrumentalist, distinctive voice, infectious melodies and her grace onstage.

    The Kora (a 21-stringed African harp) is one of the most important instruments belonging to the Manding peoples of West Africa (Gambia, Senegal, Mali, Guinea and Guinea-Bissau). It belongs exclusively to griot families (hereditary musical families), and only those who are born into one of these families have the right to take up the instrument professionally. Sona, who was born into one of the five principal Griot families, has become the first female to take up this instrument professionally in a male tradition that dates back over seven centuries.

    Sona's family carries a heavy reputation for renowned Kora masters, notably her grandfather Amadu Bansang Jobarteh who was an icon in Gambia’s cultural and musical history, and her cousin Toumani Diabaté who is renowned for his mastery of the Kora.

    Sona and her music has the unique ability to touch audiences from all backgrounds and cultures.

    «Первая в Африке женщина — виртуоз коры, к тому же замечательная певица и композитор, в исполнении которой традиционный фольклор, блюз и африканская поп-музыка синтезируются в поразительные эффекты!», — так восторженно писал о Соне Йобартех музыкальный критик газеты британской газеты «Guardian».Ее жизнь, образование, творчество и концертно-сценическая судьба стали одновременно и ломкой социальных стереотипов в родной Гамбии, и примером яркого личностного роста и развития для женщины из традиционной семьи в Западной Африке, и выдающимся музыкальным явлением африканского континента – явлением, которое получило должную оценку во многих странах мира.

    Кора – традиционная африканская 21-струнная арфа, распространенная в западной части континента (в странах Гамбия, Сенегал, Мали, Гвинея, Гвинея-Бисау). Обычно она звучит в руках мужчин, которые играют ан ней сидя. Появление Соны Йобартех, играющей стоя в сопровождении мужского квартета, уже само по себе стало сенсацией.Родившись в музыкальной традиционной семье, она продолжила музыкальное образование в Европе (в Королевском музыкальном колледже Лондона). С 2016 г. Сона Йобартех активно концертирует. Ее искусству и композициям рукоплескала публика Германии, Франции, Великобритании и США. Недавно состоялись выступления Соны в Австралии, Новой Зеландии и китайском Макао.

    В России и в Сочи Сона Йобартех – виртуоз африканской коры, певица и композитор – выступает впервые.

    Sona Jobarteh est née et a vécu à Londres, la plus africaine des villes européennes. Elle est issue de l’une de ces familles de griots qui magnifient la kora, cette harpe de 21 cordes venue de l’Afrique de l’Ouest. Son grand-père, Amadou Bansang Jobarteh, un Gambien, est un grand maître de la kora, et Sona Jobarteh est la première femme virtuose de cet instrument. Au cours du concert, Sona parle souvent, et très bien, de la place de la famille dans la société africaine traditionnelle... et elle fait aussi la place à un très jeune talent...

    Sona Jobarteh a suivi formation classique au Royal College of Music, où elle a étudié le violoncelle, le piano et le clavecin, puis à la Purcell School of Music pour étudier la composition, avant de jouer dans des orchestres de chambres de renom, tels l’Irish Chamber Orchestra et le Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

    Mais, dans le même temps, elle a creusé et magnifié la culture africaine, pour devenir virtuose de la kora

    Sona Jobarteh bouscule les règles en devenant la seule femme à interpréter sur scène le répertoire traditionnel des griots. Petite-fille d’Amadu Bansang Jobarteh, icône de l’Histoire musicale de Gambie, cousine du grand Toumani Diabaté, elle a été initiée à la kora par son frère. Après un parcours classique, la musicienne développe une musicalité élégante et complexe. Excellente chanteuse, sa voix captivante et ses mélodies entraînantes défendent les valeurs de l’amour, du respect et de l’ouverture aux autres en restant totalement fidèle à son héritage gambien.

    Chanteuse d’exception influencée par le jazz et l’Orient, Oum vient présenter Daba (« maintenant », en arabe marocain). Dans cet album à l’orchestration acoustique, quelques sons électroniques habillent pour la première fois les chansons de l’auteure-compositrice, comme pour les relier au monde contemporain. Les sujets d’actualité résonnent dans ses textes : la nature menacée, le sort réservé aux migrants, les violences faites aux femmes. Son « maintenant » est un état d’urgence positif qui prouve que les barrières culturelles pèsent moins que ce qui peut nous rassembler.

    Sona Jobarteh is the first female Kora virtuoso from a West African griot family. First in a tradition that is several centuries old, in which the Kora mastery was exclusively passed down from father to son. Since the release of her album 'Fasiya', she is justifiably praised, both as an instrumentalist and vocalist.
    Live, she is accompanied by four musicians

    Sona Jobarteh: kora, vocals
    Andi McLean: bass
    Mouhamadou: Sarr percussion
    Derek Johnson: guitar
