Welcome to the online home of artist, musician, and author Dave Kobrenski.

About Dave

Dave began drawing and painting at a very young age, and continues to hone these skills through his drawings and paintings.

A world music aficionado, Dave plays the Fulani flute, kamale ngoni (10-string Mande harp), djembe, and guitar, and currently performs with the Donkilo! Afro Funk Orkestra, as well as with Sayon Camara and Landaya, and various other groups.

Dave has traveled to West Africa seven times to study the music of the Mande peoples, and wrote about his experiences and the music he studied in his new book, Djoliba Crossing, which is available here. 

Thanks for visiting! Feel free to contact Dave with questions about the book, the performance groups, or booking him for a presentation.
