"Rochester Civic Music Presents" - Diali Cissokho & Kaira Ba | Sat, Mar 5, 7:30 PM - Rochester Civic Theatre | General Admission • Tickets: $23

Diali Cissokho & Kaira Ba ecstatically explore the spiritual songs, stories, and rhythms of Senegal’s millennia-old Mandé culture. Cissokho comes from a long line of prominent griots who are entrusted to maintain a West African village’s genealogies and important ceremonial affairs through song. Cissokho and his band, Kaira Ba, effortlessly integrate the traditional sounds of the kora with a modern rush of electric guitar and an exuberant rhythm section.

West African ensemble Diali Cissokho & Kaira Ba will be in the Rochester area the week of February 28 - March 5 performing Youth Enrichment Services at local and surrounding elementary schools (part of Rochester Civic Music's Artist-in- the-Schools music education residency program), and Adult Enrichment Services at select Southeast Minnesota rural libraries (part of Rochester Civic Music's Southeastern Minnesota Rural Library Tour), leading up to a full length public performance at Rochester Civic Theatre on March 5th.
