Join us for this special night of live music performed by Grammy nominated Senegalise West African Kora (harp) instrumentalist Youssoupha Sidibe.

Throw out all your ideas of what a harpist is, Youssoupha breaks out of traditional Kora styles many hundreds of years old, still predominant in Kora players, to create a new style blending aspects of Reggae, and western music creating a new style that has never been heard before.

Youssoupha has performed and recorded with many exceptional musicians. Grammy nominated for his collaboration with Matisyahu (Youth), he has released albums with Charles Neville (Tree of Life), Midnite (For All), Steve Kimock (TBA) a duet with  Michael Franti (What I be), and collaborated live with India Arie, , Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, Michael Kang of String Cheese Incident, Chris Berry Trio, Shimshai, and many more.
