Enter the World Music Competition – a wonderful experience with prizes of up to £1000

The Wales International Harp Festival attracts an amazing collection of musicians playing a diverse range of music. The World Music Competition is an excellent example of the international nature of the festival. We review two entrants for the competition below:

Josh Doughty – WALES

Josh started playing the Kora (a West African 21 string harp) at the age of 8 learning the instrument at home in Wales with his father. The 28-year old travels to West Africa every year to develop his playing skills and to learn more about the Kora.

Tutored by leading Kora players Toumani Diabate and Seckou Keita he describes his best harp experience as playing with Toumani Diabate’s band in Mali when he was just 18 years of age.
