Description

Dance lesson with Mariam Diakité at 8:00 pm; Show at 9:00 pm

Fronted by the charismatic Malian singer and dancer Mariam Diakité, Orchestra Gold (OG) plays an original stew of African – inspired rock and soul music. Drawing deeply on Mali’s musical history, OG blends analog, rhythmic dance music together with elements of psychedelic soul. With roots Malian drumming and the deep wisdom of Mariam’s vocals, OG moves audiences from the inside out.

Mariam will be teaching a very special dance class before the show!
It will feature live drumming with Malian musicians!

“Mali’s musical heritage is vast…and Mariam’s voice channels that history”
--
Banning Eyre, Senior Editor Afropop Worldwide

“I am impressed at the delicate balance Mariam has struck between paying homage to the roots music of the ancestors, and looking to the future”
Stephen Kent, Producer Music of the World KPFA Radio

“…the dynamo out front is Diakité, who has spent her life soaking up Malian traditions.”
Andrew Gilbert, Music Journalist

“At a time when everything we do revolves around how technology will influence our future, it is refreshing to hear from musicians who want to preserve old sounds…and introduce them to a younger generation of music aficionados.”
Azucena Rasilla, East Bay Express
