The Just Desserts with Will Dudley
As "curators of delightful musical delicacies from every corner of the globe," The Just Desserts explore repertoire and rhythms from dozens of different countries, reinterpreting and sometimes re-envisioning any music that catches their attention. The proposition that all music is alive, collectively shared, and constantly evolving presents the band and their audience with the opportunity to hear old things in new ways, new things in old ways, and to celebrate rich tradition in an authentically connected global context.
Will Dudley plays the kora, a harp found in the West African countries of Mali, Senegal, and Gambia. The body is built from gourds, covered in cowhide, and the strings are made of fishing line! Will began studying kora in college, at the Ohio State University, and continued his studies in Gambia, during the winter of 2013, and 2017. He plays a mix of traditional and original songs.
