The Motherland Influence presents:

  Tidiane Kone, Solomane Doumbia, Fela Kuti

WELCOME!

Let’s start with, as Fela said, “What we came into the room to do”.

On The Motherland Influence, we do explore influences of African diasporic music across cultures and across the globe.

One influential African artist was Tidiane Kone. Master of more than one instrument, this Malian musician was best known for his work with the trumpet and being able to cross borders and cultures in West Africa to work with some of the best. We’ll a tribute to him from a wonderful new album from Solomane Doumbia of Segou, Mali as well as hearing his work with such bands as Rail Band de Bamako, Mali and Orchestre T.P. Poly-Rythmo de Cotnonou, Benin.

We’ll hear cross-cultural influences with the music of Fela in Lagos, Nigeria and some of these same rhythms and instrumentation in the Caribbean and in South America.

And that’s just a start! So Let’s start!
