The Book They Can’t Erase – The Jeli, Keeper of Stories

October 1, 2019 - 10:08 pm

Arsalan Ibrahim’s life was turned upside-down one day with the purchase of a West African music CD.  This marked the start of a long journey into deep connection with his ancestry and lineage of storytelling.  Today, Ibrahim is a Jeli of the Mande tradition, using the kora as the vehicle to pass on stories and support the bridge of knowledge between Africa and North America.

Special thanks to Logic Amen and the Griot Party Experience for this story.
