Born 1920 in Brikama, Gambia, died 1982 or 1983. Bai Konte was a jali, or praise singer, and master kora musician. Father of [a=Dembo Konte] and Sherrifo Konteh, who continue to live in Brikama. He popularized the Casamance kora style (better known in Senegal than Gambia), which includes extensive improvisations with powerful strumming, and a more polyrhythmic and percussive technique. Also unique to his performances was rhythmic tapping (konkon) on the back of a kora by a second performer, and frequent use of a group of backing vocalists to accompany his own singing and storytelling. Bai Konte generally tuned his kora to a higher pitch than was standard at the time, giving a brighter sound to the instrument; another technique that has since gained popularity.
