The Kora Awards are music awards given annually for musical achievement in sub-Saharan Africa. Founded in 1994 by Ernest Adjovi, they are comparable to the American Grammy Awards in intent. The award is named after the kora, an important West African plucked chordophone.

The awards were last held in 2005, but it is set to relaunch in 2008.
