    Many of you know this already but I figure I post it anyway.

    The Kora is a an African Harp. It is palyed with 4 fingers, the thumb & index finger of each hand. The player usually plays bass, melody & solo at the same time. It takes tremendous skill.

    This guy just happens to be one of the masters, Toumani Diabate
