We were fortunate to catch up with the kora playing
Diabate, during a tour with his symmetric orchestra on a stop at
the University of Rhode

the URI Pangea
Roots music series back in 2008.
He performs solo,
with the symmetric orchestra, and on special projects
like his most recent collaboration and tour with Bela
