Chromatic Kora 22 string travel
This small, light and easily transportable Kora is a little nugget, the half-tone levers allow you to change modes very quickly and easily.
Perfect for musicians who want to travel light, it fits in a guitar bag standard.
The profile of the dams and the hears gives it a certain elegance.
Unlike most Kora the game is here alternating between right and left throughout the climb of the range.
For a prototype it is a superb instrument, I classify it as such because it has light defects (small light at the calabash-neck junction, light deviation of the bridge on the left, small defect at the level of the handle which forced me to embed a small piece of wood modifying a little the aesthetics of the instrument although it is not visible)
