Music on the Porch with Diali Cissokho & Kaira Ba  

Diali Cissokho & Kaira Ba formed after Senegalese griot musician Diali Keba Cissokho moved to North Carolina. There, he found musicians who shared his interest in music that combined Manding traditions with a local style. Diali Cissokho & Kaira Ba presents an infectious sound reminiscent of West African dance bands full of unison melody, adventurous improvisation, fiery solos, and polyrhythmic frameworks.  5:30-7:30 pm, Love House & Hutchins Forum, 410 E. Franklin St., Chapel Hill
