Back by popular demand, the High Point Arts Council is thrilled to welcome back Diali Cissokho to the High Point area for the 2019 Arts Splash Concert Series. Having performed as a duo for a Third Thursday concert presented by the Arts Council in January of 2019, Diali Cissoko will be bringing the full band for this special free Arts Splash performance on June 30 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. at the High Point University Cottrell, Amphitheater.
Diali Cissokho & Kaira Ba bring the music of Senegal and West Africa to audiences throughout North Carolina. Having grown up playing the kora (west African harp) in Senegal from a long line of Griots, or storytellers, Diali Cissokho now lives in Carrboro, NC and has been keeping the music of West Africa alive by continuously performing and educating audiences throughout the east coast. Diali Cissokho & Kaira Ba wonderfully blend the traditional sounds of the kora with their own twist of electric guitar and lively rhythm section.
