KASSÉ MADY DIABATÉ 
featuring BALLAKÉ SISSOKO

Thursday, October 1, 2015, 7:00 p.m.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Grace Rainey Rogers Auditorium
1000 5th Avenue at East 82nd St.
Presented in collaboration with The Metropolitan Museum of Art
Kassé Mady Diabaté
Kassé Mady Diabaté, one of Mali’s most celebrated vocalists, makes his first ever solo tour in the United States, with only one performance in New York. Backed by a quartet of some of Africa’s finest musicians, including the world-renowned Ballaké Sissoko on kora, this performance highlights songs from his recent album Kirike, which was hailed by The Financial Times as “the perfect setting for Diabaté’s voice.” Over the past ten years, KasséMady has been a star singer alongside fellow Malian kora player Toumani Diabaté, first with the Symmetric Orchestra, and subsequently with the Afrocubism recording project on World Circuit and in live performances. This evening marks the first and possibly the only chance to hear Kassé Mady live in New York.

WMI continues its partnership with The Metropolitan Museum of Art for the second year as part of its MetLiveArts series, and is also part of the Met’s Bring the Kids program, which allows for discounted purchase of up to three kids’ tickets.

Tickets are $35 and are available for purchase online at www.metmuseum.org and include Museum admission.
