TSA destruye el instrumento tradicional a medida del destacado músico maliense 1


Uno de los músicos más destacados de Malí criticó a la Administración de Seguridad del Transporte después de que su instrumento "imposible de reemplazar" fue destruido por agentes en el Aeropuerto Internacional John F. Kennedy de Nueva York.

Ballaké Sissoko le dijo a NBC News por correo electrónico que su kora hecha a medida, un arpa de puente de 21 cuerdas utilizada ampliamente en África occidental, fue "totalmente destruida".

"Normalmente, simplemente abren el estuche de vuelo debido a la extraña forma del instrumento y el estuche", dijo. "Esta vez, lo desmontaron y lo rompieron".

Llamándolo una "situación terrible", agregó que esperaba "obtener una disculpa en algún momento".

En un anterior publicación de Facebook Sobre el incidente, Sissoko, de 52 años, dijo que descubrió el instrumento en pedazos el martes, en su casa en París. Dijo que había abordado el vuelo el 2 de febrero y llegó a la capital francesa al día siguiente.

Fue acompañado por una nota en español de la TSA que decía: "La seguridad inteligente ahorra tiempo".

NBC News se ha acercado a la TSA para hacer comentarios.

En su publicación de Facebook, Sissoko preguntó si los agentes se habrían "atrevido a desmantelar un violín Stradivarius", y agregó que su Kora había sido destruida debido a la "ignorancia cultural y el racismo que está dominando muchas partes del mundo".

Sissoko acababa de completar una gira por ciudades de Estados Unidos, incluidos Los Ángeles, Miami, Chicago y Nueva York con su grupo 3MA. La banda toma su nombre de las dos primeras letras del país de origen de cada miembro en francés: Mali, Marruecos, Madagascar.

Sissoko comenzó a tocar la kora para el "Orchestre National du Mali" cuando tenía 13 años, y finalmente viajó por África. Después de mudarse a Francia, formó su propia compañía, obteniendo reconocimiento internacional.

Sissoko dijo que ahora tendría que viajar a la capital de Malí, Bamako, para comprar piezas para una nueva kora.
