World Music Festival - We Banjo 3 and Noura Mint Seymali - Young Auditorium (Free- ticket required)
Young, master musicians, We Banjo 3, were named New Group of the Year & Concert of the Year Winners at The Livies: “Liveireland Irish Music Awards 2013.” They are a stunning fusion of modern brilliance and tradition that spans all tastes in Irish music.
Noura Mint Seymali is heir to a Mauritanian Griot lineage stretching back for untold generations and has emerged as a nationally beloved star and one of Mauritania’s foremost musical emissaries. Her success stems from her ability to combine a rare classical mastery and a griot’s cultural authority with musical idioms that speak to West Africa and beyond. Noura’s music is the embodiment of pentatonic desert blues. Come explore the desert with the Diva of Mauritania.
