The balafon (xylophone) has electrified popular music in West Africa since the court of Emperor Sundiata Keita back in 1235. With his band KAKANDE, Famoro Dioubate updates this tradition with an explosive new groove. Lush vocals, sinewy guitars, flutes, and cellos meet the virtuosic balafon of this master griot from Guinea.
MISSIA SARAN "African Tina Turner" DIOUBATE is one of the great divas of Guinea. She will rock your world!
PETIT CONDE burst onto the scene with his guitar and his friend Famoro in the '90s. His innovations helped turn Guinea into a powerhouse. Come enjoy this rare appearance in the U.S.!
Founded in 2005, CHARANGA SOLEIL is an all-star dance band featuring some of the most creative and seasoned musicians on NY's international scene. With a classic repertoire and original arrangements, the band brings together three of the world's most popular dance genres - Cuban salsa, Congolese rumba-soukous and Haitian compas - and some that haven't even been invented yet!
Please note: This is an EARLY SHOW, starting at 8pm and over by 10pm - so don't miss it...
