Win FREE Tickets to Trio Da Kali @ Sanctuary for Independent Media on Wednesday
Taking the stage at the Sanctuary for Independent Media in Troy at 7pm on Wednesday (November 9) will be Trio Da Kali, the African threesome carrying on the continuing vitality and legacy of the Mandé griot culture of southern Mali. They represent the next generation of the centuries-old tradition of specialist hereditary musical artisans, story-tellers, regalers of the news and custodians of history.
The trio is led by Mali’s foremost player of the 22-key balafon, Lassana Diabaté. The sublimely soulful voice of the trio belongs to Hawa Kassé Mady Diabaté, daughter of Malian musical giant Kassé Mady Diabaté. And the deep funky tones of Africa’s oldest string instrument, the bass ngoni, are skillfully pumped out by Mamadou Kouyaté, the son of internationally renowned maestro Bassekou Kouyaté.
Tickets for the concert are $20, available in advance online as well at the door.
