Cheick Hamala Diabate is not just an artist but he’s a descendant of Mali’s ancient griot tradition. Washington is fortunate to have him based here and performing regularly. You can get into his sound this Friday along with Los Empresarios and The Sol Power All-Stars, aka DJs Meistro, Deep Sang and Stylus.
From the lilting grooves of Diabate’s n’goni, Los Empresarios’ cumbia, funk and salsa, or Sol Power’s afro-latin beats, you’ll be moving non-stop.
