“Beautiful, soulful precision.” —Miami New Times

Burkina Faso kora master Mamadou Diabaté represents the rich historical tradition of West Africa’s Mande music and its continuing experimentation. In this intimate FlynnSpace performance, six Burkina Faso musicians join Diabaté in a dive into the jeli tradition of the Sambla, whose musical language mirrors their spoken language, tracing back to the 13th century. In 2010, Diabaté won a Grammy for his solo album, Douga Mansa.

Presented in association with the Office of the Vice President for Human Resources, Diversity, and Multicultural Affairs through the UVM President’s Initiative for Diversity.
