Jali is from Gambia, West Africa and plays the Kora, a stringed instrument with similarities to harp and guitar, in the city centre of Manchester every Saturday. The sound he makes with it is incomparably beautiful:

Y ahora en español, jeje.

Una foto impresionante. Grandiosa por el color, por lo que transmite, por las luces, lo que se ve, lo que se intuye... Me gustó mucho.

Slaudos ;)

Mighty light, man. Really hard to pick out the best component, as it's all there. Light, expression, texture.

Jedi. j-e-d-i. Jedi. Use it in a sentence? Mr. O'Shea is a f&$@ing Jedi.

Amazing shot! Wonderful play of light and shadows, and a superb composition! Love the mood and tones too! Vote.

I love the sharpness and the exposure which bring out all the little details. The cigarette in the corner of his mouth emphasizes his relaxed attitude. I can allmost hear the music.

Fantastic. I love the whites of his eyes.

Very 60's of you. Well done Niall.

The sound must be beautiful indeed, but I dare say that your photo surpasses it!! What a fantastic shot... the light and the shadows are incredible, giving and taking away all that needs to be seen and felt. Wow!
It's definitely my favourite also. One of the best photos I've seen in Pbase...
You rule!!

A pure wonder, framing is "professionel", the play with light and tonality is splendid. One of your more beautiful image
I can feel the vibes

Great tones and shadows..everything in it!truly wonderful...v
Craig Persel01-Mar-2006 14:06
Love the tight framing and duo-tone treatment. Bravo.
jude01-Mar-2006 11:06
I'd say a CD cover in the making... the way the sun is in this portrait puts emphasis on the out and out coolness (word?) that exudes from him... puts the details in focus.. perfect brownish tones and contrast, along with a great composition... I like how he's looking off to the side - outside the frame.. One of your best portraits, and he needs to see this.
Guest 01-Mar-2006 08:34
oooh, wonderful...
Guest 01-Mar-2006 08:18
Well this is an incomporably beautiful picture. Absolutely stunning. Portraits are tough enough but musicians in action are even tougher. I am blwon away by this - the depth, the contrast, the tone... However he sounded, I know you have done this justice... One of my favourite images on pbase this year. Huge vote
Guest 01-Mar-2006 08:13
