Description

Here is what the University Musical Society says:

"In the midst of a military coup that has brought terrible unrest to Mali, two of the country’s talents unite for a special concert. Bassekou Kouyaté is a virtuoso picker, musical visionary, and one of Africa’s greatest instrumentalists, whose work blurs the lines between West African and American roots music. His instrument, the ngoni, is an ancestor of the banjo and the key instrument of griot storytelling culture. Perpetuating Mali’s rich musical tradition, Fatoumata Diawara presents a joyous mix of the vibrant and understated, combining songs about love, politics, and empowerment. Inspired by Wassoulou tradition, jazz, and blues, she has created her own unique contemporary folk sound with a distinctly African spin, with arresting melodies soaring over intricate guitar and drum arrangements."

Hello, all,
It is too early for me to know whether or not I'll be in town that evening, but I certainly hope so. It sounds like the perfect concert for mid-winter.
