        Music of Mali | African/African-American Culture

        Yaya Diallo, a musician from Mali, talks about how he came to live in Kentucky, the healing properties of music, and his interest in new forms of African music that combine the music of the elders with that of young people. Then he introduces the piece he will perform, describing it as a “thank you to ancestors.” He plays the balaphon and talking drum.
