Your Regional Guide To The Performing Arts

Presented by Wisconsin Union Theater

One of the few women in a male-dominated field, singer-songwriter Sona Jobarteh rose to prominence in the west African folk scene through her mastery of the Kora, a 21-stringed harp traditionally taught to men exclusively.

A lifetime activist and educator, Jobarteh’s songs deal with contemporary issues like diaspora, gender inequality, and self-discovery. Her work has been featured in multiple high-profile films, including Mandela: Long Walk to FreedomThe Motherland and the remake of Roots.
