Joanna In Montreux

Joanna Chills With a West African Musician  in Montreaux – Montreaux.  Located on the westcoast of Africa and filled with mangroves and palm trees, Guinea’s captial – Conakry, is one of the wettest cities in the world. Guinea’s major resources are gold, diamonds, aluminium, bauxite and iron ore. West Africa is one of the few places I have not visited – but thankfully I found a friend that had moved from Guinea and was playing music in Montreaux!  I found a translater and found out that his instrument was a Kora and he had made it himself by hand. People who are not part of the industrial business in Guinea, live by growing and selling crops and are known for their hand carving.  Joanna stopped and enjoyed his music for the afternoon.
