Toumani Diabaté & Sidiki Diabaté

Info and tickets.

This concert will be the New York City premiere of a rare father-and-son collaboration, Toumani Diabaté, genius of African music and widely recognized as the greatest living kora (a 21-stringed West African harp) player, performing with his son Sidiki, the instrument’s emerging star, who has said that it’s his dream to play with his father. Together, they perform a combination of obscure, almost forgotten kora pieces and ones that provide a new look at some Mande classics from Mali. Their playing is extraordinary, as they seem to communicate telepathically and finish each other’s musical sentences - it’s dazzling musicianship. Their album Toumani & Sidikiwas released in 2014 on World Circuit Records to wide acclaim.
