An abstract wooden carved African figure playing the Kora Instrument.

The Kora instrument is a Mandinka harp built from a large calabash cut in half and covered with cow skin to make a resonator with a long hardwood neck. The skin is supported by two handles that run under it. It supports a notched double free-standing bridge.

It doesn’t fit into any one category of musical instruments, but rather several, and must be classified as a “double-bridge-harp-lute”.

The strings run in two divided ranks, making it a double harp. They do not end in a soundboard but are held in notches on a bridge, making it a bridge harp.

They originate from a string arm or neck and cross a bridge directly supported by a resonating chamber, making it a lute too.
