Noura Mint Seymali

April 29, 2015 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm EDT

Noura Mint Seymali in concert featuring: Noura Mint Seymali, vocals / ardine; Jeiche Ould Chighaly, guitar; Ousmane Touré, bass; Matthew Tinari, drums. Seyamil is breaking ground. The “Diva of Mauritania” reflects the intersections of Arab and Black African cultures- effortlessly linking tonal and rhythmic modalities from opposite sides of the Sahara and setting it to a back beat. Heir to a Mauritanian Griot lineage stretching back for untold generations, Noura is blasting forward on the ancient spaceship of pentatonic desert blues and carving out a personality on her way as vanguard Diva of the Sahel.
