Diali Cissokho & Kaira Bar

Diali Cissokho & KairaBa, Phat Lip CL Recommends

When: Sat., July 7, 9 p.m. 2018
Price: $10

Diali Cissokho comes from a long line of griots — the traveling musicians and storytellers of Senegal. Pan-cultural combo Kaira Ba, Cissokho’s collaboration with four N.C. rock musicians, boasts spidery guitars, stabbing horns and raw-throated vocals. Djembe mixes with drum set, kora and guitar trade licks and the lyrics are a riot of English, Manding and Wolof. It’s a call-and-response from the streets of Dakar to the Carolinas, between West African music and its younger cousin American rock.
