Trio Da Kali-Traditional Music from Mali
Feb 18, 2014
8:00 pm until 9:30 pm
Trio Da Kali is an extraordinary ngoni (lute), bala (xylophone), and vocal trio from Mali. Trio Da Kali’s project of rescuing old styles with a creative and modern approach arises naturally from their own upbringing at the source of tradition. All members of the trio belong to intensely musical lineages of hereditary musicians, who have passed on to them an astonishing wealth of songs and musical knowledge. Much of this captivating repertoire is now forgotten or neglected, and yet it represents the heart of a musical culture that has stood the test of time across many centuries.
