If youve played with blues legend Taj Mahal, gigged with oft-out-there trombonist Roswell Rudd, added sounds to Björks Volta, and collaborated on a Grammy-winning recording with Ali Farka Touré, that pretty much qualifies you as a big freaking deal.
Thats the brief history of Malian kora player Toumani Diabaté, who performs an exclusive one-night-only concert at the Musical Instrument Museum. Diabaté plays the 21-string instrument native to West Africa like no other.
A pre-concert chat at 7 p.m. with Diabaté precedes the performance.
