Les Griots de Montréal

To the sound of the kora, guitar and percussion, between speech, song, and traditional Mandingo rhythms, rooted in the ancestral art of West African griot, this show takes a human approach to retracing the history of an oral tradition that’s thousands of years old. African culture-bearers and messengers, the griot Tapa Diarra and her associates will use words to help
youdiscover African tales in the manner of the griots.
