An experienced Kora player who combines the traditional rhythms of Mali with modern western influences boasts a cultural entertainment experience that enriches events and mesmerises guests.

Having a natural talent for the Kora, our musician was soon noticed by the Master Kora musician, Toumani Diabate and in 2007 he was invited to Bamako, the capital of Mali, to study under Toumani in his home. This unusual 21-string harp creates stunning background music that is rich in culture.

Since travelling to Mali he has collaborated with a number of talented musicians from Africa to the UK. Josh has toured England and France, playing to large audiences at festivals such as Womad, Small Nations, Shambala and Boomtown, as well as to more intimate audiences at weddings, private functions, African themed events and renowned venues such a Ronnie Scotts. 

In addition to regularly performing all over the country and Europe, Josh has worked with renowned music producers to record his own solo album as well as record several pieces for the Rhythms Del Mundo Africa Charity album as a part of the APE project.

Working with various charities and professionals, our musician continues to share the music of the Kora to those who rarely, if ever have the opportunity to experience live music. 

Our musician also teaches the Kora and has developed his ability to engage and relate to people through music. The perfect sound for corporate events, private parties, African themed occasions, festivals and any event that desires an experienced musician to create a stunning ambience.

Having developed his own unique style of playing that brings together both African culture and his own Welsh heritage, our musician radiates passion every time he performs. To discover more African themed entertainment go to our Themed Entertainment section and click the Africa category.
