FOOTMAD presents Trio Da Kali

Malian supergroup performing in the Mandé griot tradition  -- mixing the old with new songs to give a contemporary modern edge. Trio Da Kali unites three outstanding musicians from the Mande culture of southern Mali who come from a long line of distinguished griots (hereditary musicians). The trio sings, plays the balafon (a type of wooden xylophone) and a West African stringed instrument called a bass ngoni. Trio Da Kali brings a contemporary twist to ancient and neglected repertoires.
