It is Diébaté’s vision to share his culture with Americans through his music and cultural exchange opportunities.   The second concert, on August 12th, will feature Polish music by Joey Milardo and the Musical Cavaliers. The Cavaliers are a seasoned band that entertains with a musical offering of Polkas, Obereks, Waltzes, Big Band, and Swing.
