Daniel Berkman / Bio

Daniel Berkman is a San Francisco based composer, multi-instrumentalist and innovator of the Kora (a 21-stringed harp/lute from West Africa).

His early recordings for Kora highlighted his use of electronic devices and loop boxes to transform his kora in real time in live performance. His first three cd's, "Heartstrings", "Feverdreams" and "Headlands" mark this period between 1996 and 2000 which feature Daniel creating other worldly soundscapes and a playing technique drawing on his myriad influences, including that of the great Kora masters of our time.
