One of the most amazing string instruments ever created: a type of harp/lute from West Africa (mainly found in Senegal, Mali, Gambia, and Guinea) with many strings. The instrument consists of a long fingerboard with moveable frets, and two courses of strings running across a large gourd across which an animal skin is stretched. The instrument is held toward the chest with the strings facing toward you, and the gourd has two pegs, one on the each on the left and right of the top. The sound is delicate and tinkly, much like a harp.
Toumane Diabate and Alhaji Bai Konte are two of the top names to seek when you'e looking for a CD of kora music.

The most beautiful girl alive. Commonly identified by her "ghetto booty". Currently dating a cool guy only known as "The Man".

Kora is an intelligent woman who always aims to achieve the best. Her best friends bring out the best in her and she brings out the best in them. She loves to sing and write music with her guitar. She is a kind girl with a big heart, but be warned, you don't want to get on her bad side. Her fiery personality scares people from time to time but really she is just a bundle of joy and always has a smile on her face. She can often confuse others and herself with her alter-ego.
person 1 - She's so confusing, it's like she has two totally different sides.
person 2 - must be Kora.
