Common Ground: Mini-Global Mashup #5 – Southern Italy Meets Senegal

January 9 @ 1:00 pm


Our NEW series Common Ground: Mini-Global Mashups are curated by acclaimed trumpeter and composer Frank London (The Klezmatics), combining two amazing global music artists along with accompanists for an afternoon of music, conversation and exploration.

Alioune Faye works with greats, including Youssou N’dour and Stevie Wonder. He plays sabar, tama and djembe. He is the leader of the group Yakar Rhythms. Faye comes from an extensive line of griots and drummers in Senegal. (Griots are historians who deliver teachings as wandering musicians, poets and singers.)

This concert is accompanied by Frank London on Trumpet. Sir Frank London is a Grammy-award winning trumpeter-composer and co-founder of the Klezmatics!
