WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

With releases ranging from contemporary Afropop to time-honored African music that have received worldwide critical acclaim, Senegalese master musician Baaba Maal has been making music for nearly two decades. His unique and thought-provoking Tales from the Sahel now comes to the United States following a successful U.K. tour. For this intimate two-part evening, Maal will discuss personal, social and political issues with noted music journalist and author Chris Salewiczby, and then will be joined by his longstanding percussionist Mamadou Sarr and multi-instrumentalist Jim Palmer for an acoustic set that fuses funk, rock and blues with the beats and melodies of West Africa.
