Sona Jobarteh is the first professional female Kora virtuoso to come from any of the West African Griot dynasties. Her lineage carries a formidable reputation for renowned Kora masters, most notable amongst these are her grandfather Amadu Bansang Jobarteh and her cousin, the legendary Toumani Diabaté. 

Sona is reputed for her skill as an instrumentalist, her distinctive voice, infectious melodies and her grace onstage, and she has rapidly achieved international success as a top class performer. 

The demand for Sona Jobarteh's live performances has rocket in recent years, and 2019 saw her perform at some of the world's most renowned festivals and venues such as the Hollywood Bowl in LA, WOMAD in Australia and New Zealand and Symphony Space in New York City, while also performing all over Europe, in China, Africa and Canada.

In 2022, "60 Minutes" featured Lesley Stahl's interview with Sona, which you can watch below.
