Famoro Dioubate and Africa America

Event Date: 
Thursday, February 7, 2013 - 10:00pm
Venue: 

Famoro Dioubate and Africa America featuring West African master musician Famoro Dioubate from Guinea on balafon (African xylophone) and voice, legendary jazz drummer Bob Moses on drums, composer, guitarist and singer Bouba Diabate from Mali, West Africa, and local greats Jason Davis on bass and Kenny Kozol on percussion and vocals.

Not many musicians can claim an 800-year musical legacy as balafon (xylophone) master Famoro Dioubate can. From one of the most prestigious families of griots (musician/storytellers) in Guinea, West Africa, Dioubate is a guardian of traditions dating back to the 13th century in the ancient Mandé Empire.
