Malian diva Khaira Arby
October 1, 2010 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm EDT
Join us for our season opener! Experience desert defiance and womanly power as Malian diva Khaira Arby and her band invoke the mystery, history, and heart of Timbuktu, live in concert! Inspired by her cousin Ali Farka Toure, Arby turns to her mixed Berber and Songhai roots and draws on a sweet mixture of desert blues and recording sophistication, blending ripping electric guitar with the forefather of the banjo and funky drum breaks with the traditional percussion of the scraper and the calabash.
We are committed to lowering the barriers to access for events at The Sanctuary for Independent Media. For people who are hard of hearing or deaf, blind or low-vision, or whose physical limitations can interfere with a satisfying experience, let us know two weeks in advance so we can make appropriate arrangements.
