One of Mali’s most well-respected vocalists, Kasse Mady Diabate is descended from a long line of griots (of the Manding musical class) and considered “musical royalty” in West Africa. He’ll celebrate his country’s rich diversity in a melodic–and very listenable–evening celebrating the traditional tunes he’s been perfecting for five decades. From international collaborations to solo works, Diabate’s projects have earned him critical acclaim worldwide. His performances are so compelling that, according to The Arts Desk, listening to Diabate “is like sitting in a Bamako compound, late at night, under the stars, and being sung to, person to person.”
