Cheick Hamala Diabate

Multiflora Productions and Rhizome present a special early evening concert with Cheick Hamala Diabate and Rumput.

Born in Mali and based in Maryland, Cheick Hamala Diabate is a steward of the 800-year-old West African griot tradition. Oral historians, singers and musicians, griots belong to a special social caste and are part of a hereditary lineage passed from parent to child. Under the tutelage of his maternal grandfather, the griot Demba Tounkara, Cheick was taught, and soon mastered, the ngoni, a traditional stringed lute considered one of the ancestors of the banjo.

Our performance will include crankies and wayang beber (scrolling artwork) by Indonesian artists and members of Rumput.
