Venue: Arab American Museum
Organization: Arab American Museum
Cost: $10/$9 Museum Members

A djeli (griot) from one of Mali’s most storied musical families, Diabate is keeper of a vibrant musical tradition that blends history and performance. Equal parts musician and storyteller, his art is rooted as much in strings, percussion and sound as it is in praising, chiding, entertaining and reliving Mali’s past. A world-recognized master of the ngoni – a Malian instrument resembling the banjo – Diabate has fused the traditional rhythms and vocals of his ancestors with more electric American sounds during his decade living in the U.S.
