Joshua Doughty 225x300 - JOSHUA DOUGHTY
From the age of 8, Josh Doughty learnt how to play his first piece of music on the Kora, a West African 21-string, harp. His initial lessons started at his home in Wales with his father Adam Doughty. Watching and listening to the melodic instrument as a child, Josh developed a fascination for the Kora and a desire to master this unique and complex instrument.Josh is able to combine the traditional rhythms of Mali with modern western influences creating self-composed pieces with a totally new and individual style that captivates his audience. His passion for this unique, complex and melodic instrument has helped to bring joy to all who hear him play and has inspired many to follow in his footsteps to become a truly dedicated and talented Kora musician.
