Orchestra Gold With Mariam Diakite
Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture & SFIAFMay 25th @ 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Orchestra Gold with Mariam Diakite perform “oldstyle” Bambaric folk music from Mali at Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture. Orchestra Gold plays big band music from Mali’s post-independence 1960s and 1970s “golden” era.
Folkloric songs are the centerpiece of Orchestra Gold’s performance. Some of the songs originated hundreds of years ago. These songs contain inspiration, wisdom, and insight into the human condition. In the current era of turbulence in the U.S., this wisdom offers a new perspective on modern-day existence.
