Jonathan Hodgkinson is a multi-instrumentalist that has long had a passion for African music and culture. He started by taking lessons in Djembe drumming and dance and this led on to an appreciation of Master Kora players such as Toumani Diabate and Seckou Keita. He has studied in Senegal and Gambia under the wings of Bouly Diawara and Jali Hammey Saho. He currently plays with the exciting new group Dimbaya, a project that mixes the traditional sounds of the kora and balafon with more contemporary grooves. He is also a rhythm guitarist having played in Kalakuta (afrobeat).
