      EVENT DETAILS
      Diali Cissokho & Kaira Ba

      with Jonathan Scales Fourchestra
      Diali Cissokho & Kaira Ba ecstatically explore the spiritual songs, stories, and rhythms of Senegals millenia-old Mand culture. Indeed, Cissokho comes from a long line of prominent griots, or storytellers, who are entrusted to maintain a West African villages most important ceremonial affairs through song. But he is much more than a preservationist. Cissokho and his band, Kaira Ba, effortlessly integrate the traditional sounds of the kora with a modern rush of electric guitar and an exuberant rhythm section. Together, Diali Cissokho & Kaira Ba sustain one of West Africas most expressive legacies with their own energetic interpretations. Grayson Haver Currin
