Concert Aly Keita Trio
On May 17, 2022, the Africa Multiple Cluster of Excellence at the University of Bayreuth invites the public to experience the ALY KEITA TRIO, whose world-renowned music combines Afropop with funk and jazz elements. The Ivorian Aly Keita is one of the great virtuosos of the balafon - a variant of the xylophone common mainly in West Africa, in which hollowed-out gourds serve as resonators. His enthusiasm and love of music are contagious and infectious. Together with Dutch drummer Marcel van Cleef and virtuoso and funky bassist Roberto Badoglio, he formed the ALY KEITA TRIO. The trio is based in Berlin.
The evening of May 17 will also feature an opening act by Mozambican musician Matchume Zango and South African choreographer and dancer Desiré Davids. Zango will play the traditional instrument timbila, a marimba-like instrument revered as part of Mozambique's national heritage.
The event marks the start of the 2-day-celebration of Dr. Fatou Sow's BIGSAS Honorary doctorate awarded by the University of Bayreuth.
