Katie Melua, so sweet, so delicate, lovely presence.

Kora - west African harp lute, popular in Gambia and Senegal. It has a skin stretched across a large gourd, a wooden neck and gut or nylon fishwire strings stretched across a tall bridge. Played somewhat like a harp.



What a lovely voice Katie Melua has, and that was a sweet song. The Kora has an intricate sound. I liked it very much.

I love Katie Melua, she has such a gorgeous voice.

Katie is indeed an amazing singer, top 20 in my list :)

I absolutely adore Katie Melua's voice. My very favourite was her first song when she was first discovered - The Closest Thing to Crazy - wonderful! I had never heard of the Kora. It's amazing the selection of musical instruments that you are coming up with for us!

Thank you Diane, I really try to make this challenge interesting :)

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
