Join The National Arts Club in celebrating 75 years of the United Nations with Yacine Boularès and his group Ajoyo and master kora player Yacouba Sissoko.
Yacine Boularès has been described by Radio France as “a Tunisian man in New York, one of the most talented Jazzmen of his generation.“ His explorations of North and West African rhythms led to the creation of Ajoyo, a mystic brew of African tradition, jazz, and soul. He created the Habibi Festival in New York, a three-day festival dedicated to contemporary Arab culture.
Yacouba Sissoko, a traditional musician from Mali, incorporates a variety of musical influences into his repertoire and, as such, has developed his own unique style of kora. He was selected as a Teaching Artist by the Weill Music Institute at Carnegie Hall from 2016 onwards.
