Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jacques Burtin (born November 10, 1955) is a French composer, kora player and filmmaker. After studying Literature and Art at La Sorbonne (Paris), he was introduced to the kora by brother Dominique Fournier at the Abbey of Bec Hellouin (Normandy, France) and by brother Dominique Catta, composer and choirmaster of the Keur Moussa Monastery (Senegal). He began to compose for the kora, solo pieces as well as duets with Western instruments. His works are inspired by spiritual authors like St. John of the Cross or Etty Hillesum, writers like Georges Simenon or Hermann Hesse, painters like Henri Matisse or Jean-Michel Basquiat, or photographers like Nan Goldin ou Diane Arbus. He collaborates with artists, dancers and poets and conceives interdisciplinary performances.
