Toumani Diabate's Symmetric Orchestra
Live and direct from Bamako, Mali's Hogon nightclub, where they've been performing weekly for more than a decade, this kora virtuoso's remarkable group boasts a pan-African lineup of fellow Mandè griots. The Symmetrics deliver a jubilant polyrhythmic party of percussion, electric guitars, and Diabate's 21-stringed instrument showering notes like a musical waterfall.
