Daouda is a Business student and Marketing Research Intern at HSU. Daouda was part of various musical projects in Scandinavia between 2004 and 2007, where his band played several concerts and hosted workshops in Copenhagen, Oslo and Drammen. His band also recorded the Djenkadi album.
Daouda will play the musical instruments called N'goni and Kora. N'goni and Kora are similar in form but very different in sound. They both are made of a large gourd, fishing lines, and hardwood neck. N'goni has 8 strings and a pentatonic scale. Kora, on the other hand, has 21 strings and diatonic scale. Daouda spent time with his friends and neighbors whose parents were N'goni players while growing up in Burkina Faso. He and his friends learned to build the instrument as a mean to own their toys. He says that the experience was quite memorable!
