SHOP TO THE BEAT: Chet Corpt
Come support local artists and bookstores, and join us for a free, all ages concert. Brought to you as part of the Shop to the Beat series of concerts.
ABOUT THE ARTIST: Chet Corpt began his study of kora and it's repertoire with noted American performer Kane Mathis in Seattle. He later travelled to The Republic of the Gambia twice to study with legendary kora master and former Minister of Culture, Malamini Jobarteh, living in his compound and studying with him and other African kora players. Chet plays the standard repertoire of songs known throughout West Africa. However, the arrangements and the improvisations that come along with it are original.
