The three members of Trio da Kali come from a long line of distinguished southern Malian griots. With only voice and the traditional West African instruments the balafon and bass ngoni, they brought us the intimate, personal, and unforgettable songs from their Mande culture. Their new record was a collaboration with the Kronos Quartet and a beautiful exemplar of cultural cross-pollination.
Williams College alum and African drumming sensation Jason Lucas opened.
