Kadialy Kouyate and Fred Thomas


Born in southern Senegal into the great line of Kouyate Griots, who continue their inherited role of storytelling and news-bearing, Kadialy sings original songs of hope, peace, love and humanity, themes that unite and uplift his audience. Inspired by traditional repertoire, he plays the kora, a beautiful African harp steeped in history, with great dexterity and ease. He’ll be in duo with music polymath and accomplished multi-instrumentalist Fred Thomas on double bass.
