$22

Join us for an experience of the history, power, magic and guidance of the West African Kora  with world renowned 71st-generation virtuoso Madou Sidiki Diabaté, accompanied by his  longtime student Salif Bamakora, as the duo explore and interpret the traditional repertoire of  songs and stories of the Djeli, or Griots, the hereditary keepers of knowledge encoded in  music. Serving for centuries as advisors, emissaries, oral historians and peacemakers, the  Djeli maintain the people’s ties to their cultural inheritance and vitality of purpose with a resilient  and adaptive cordage of intertwined praise and remembrance. Masterful musicianship  combined with glimpses of the rich and storied significance of West Africa’s musical memory  enlivened and animated by the harp strings of an ancient tradition still blossoming in the 21st  century.
