The Jobarteh kunda trio unplugged, featuring storyteller and musician Tormenta Jobarteh on the kora, brings the audience on a world musical journey telling thought provoking and humorous stories from the mande tradition. The show takes listeners  through the heart and soul of Africa, through europe and all the way to the carribean islands.

On the bass is Felix Occhionero from Italy, on the Percussion and vocals Humphrey Cairo from Aruba, long-standing road companions and producers in the community that is Jobarteh Kunda.

For 20 years, musician and Storyteller Tormenta Jobarteh travelled with his world music group Jobarteh-Kunda appearing at international music and storytelling festivals.

He earned 1st place in the 1st festival of the best German-speaking Storytellers (16 storytellers) in new churches-Vluyn on the 2nd of July 05.

His book with CD for children, “Taling-Taling” won the master prize of the Bavarian state government for excellence.
