West African Strings

by Louis Afrifa

My name is Louis Afrifa.

I specialize in making a professional, 21-string Kora instrument, Burkina Kamale Ngoni, Ghanaian Seprewa harp instrument and more. With experience over 10 years of making, as well as playing the instrument.

In 2008 I traveled back to Mali to visit a friend named Toumani Diabate a famous great kora player in the world. Whilst staying with his family I've learnt additional skills in making kora instruments from one of the best Kora Luthier in the capital Bamako.

I've sold my works to customers both in USA and some musicians here in Ghana. I make sure the quality and the best sound is guaranteed while maintaining the traditional way of building the instruments.
