Hello Everyone,
I am pleased to announce that 2016 will see the long overdue production of my ensemble album. This recording will be a summary of many different approaches to both kora and oud which I have been exploring for the past 5 years. Even though I have participated in other people's creative projects, I have not had the resources to release a recording of my own compositions. 

Over the course of my 20 year study of both kora and oud,  I have endeavored to create a voice on both instruments that strongly reflects each tradtion while also being a result of my influenences across many musical genres. The pieces on this project will situate the instruments in new ensembles and contexts in an effort to ask new questions about the orchestrational possibilities for both. 

The ensembles will be small groups of 3-5 musicians and each would feature either kora or oud. Traditional approches to rhythm and melody will be simultaneously utilized, heavily rexamined and recontextualized to create what is intended to become a new answer to the question of how musical cultures dialog with one another. 

I have set my fundraising target amount at a price that reflects the desire to record in a quality facility and pay the musicians that I am hiring a fair session price for thier contributions. 

Thanks you so much for your donation, I will be in touch as the  project progresses,

Kane Mathis
