Philipp Rudloff Daniel Berkman plays the Kora. This is a West African 21-string lute-bridge-harp while Daniel seems to play an electro-acoustic version, the gravi-kora. The 14-track record creates a warm, soothing atmosphere and helps me maintain a distraction-free environment while reading or working – or while purely listening. Favorite track: Ledge.

about

Calabashmoon is Daniel Berkman’s 4th recording
of music for the Kora (a 21-stringed harp/ lute
from West Africa). While his previous three CD’s
focused on Kora treated live with electronic devices
and looped in real time, Calabashmoon is a collection
of lush compositions, weaving in sounds and samples
from his tour with Diali Kunda Kouyate through
Senegal, Gambia and Mali in 2002.
Originally released in 2005.
