KasséMadyDiabaté, one of Mali’s most celebrated vocalists, makes his first ever solo tour in the United States, with only one performance in New York. Backed by a quartet of some of Africa’s finest musicians, including the world-renowned Ballaké Sissoko on kora, this performance highlights songs from his recent album Kirike, which was hailed by The Financial Times as “the perfect setting for Diabaté’s voice.” Over the past ten years, KasséMady has been a star singer alongside fellow Malian kora player Toumani Diabaté, first with the Symmetric Orchestra, and subsequently with the Afrocubism recording project on World Circuit and in live performances. This evening marks the first and possibly the only chance to hear KasséMady live in New York.
