Students, staff and parents are welcome to join the concert at Alliance Française on Wednesday 19 February to see two artists hailing from Senegal, Mali and Switzerland.
Noumoucounda was born in Dakar to a griot family. He likes to cross boundaries and mix traditional music (using his kora) with African rap. He has travelled around the world and collaborated with many well-known artists. Noumoucounda truly encapsulates a new genre of versatile and modern artist —the urban griot.
Thaïs Diarra is from both Mali and Switzerland and her music includes African traditional sounds and soul mixed with reggae. Her texts speak about hope and self-confidence, celebrate womanhood, femininity and sisterhood. She is dedicating her album to women of ambition that are still fighting for respect and equality, especially in Africa.
