There will be live music performed by Jali Nyonkoling Kuyateh as part of the We Face Forward live music programme. Jali is a master of the African harp or Kora, an instrument built from a large calabash cut in half and covered with cow skin to make a resonator with a notched bridge like a lute or guitar.
