Abundant Dragon This music, this instrument, this artist! Divine!!!

John has handcrafted his Kora and an intimate relationship with it's song in a way you can feel. I met John at a yoga retreat in the Caribbean where he was playing the Kora during some of the yoga classes. Sometimes solo, and sometimes with other musicians, the experience was something as unforgettable as indescribable. This new album catches that essence of his music's ability to carry one on wings of calm and delight, through enlightening perspectives and gratitude for the moment. It's really something special.
Support handcrafted music!

about

“What is so impressive about Hughes’ work is the way he has absorbed so much of the stylistic language of Mande kora music, and yet freed himself to compose within the idiom…it is confident, original, and above all, highly musical.”

-Banning Eyre, Afropop Worldwide

Played on a 22 stringed Kora built by John Hughes.
Recorded live in Berkeley, California in the Downtown Berkeley Bart Station during the winter / spring of 2015.
