Jayme Stone, a two-time Juno Award-winning banjo player and composer, travelled to Mali to research the origins of banjo music and how it morphed as it came to the Americas on slaving ships. His experiences and relationships with African mentors form the basis of the recording Africa to Applachia, which won the 2009 Juno Award for Best World Music Album. Stone is touring with master kora player Yacouba Sissoko, who has recently completed projects with Regina Carter and Harry Belafonte.
