Museum of the African Diaspora: West African Dance & Music with Orchestra Gold

Contributed By:  Museum of the African Diaspora

Join an afternoon of music and dance with Orchestra Gold. This program will include interactive performances with Mariam Diakite (Lyricist, Vocalist) and Erich Huffaker (Guitarist, Composer) of Orchestra Gold. Mariam will bring specially designed percussion instruments for children to engage with the music and will teach children and their families dances they can perform to the music.

There will be two 45-minute sets performed at 2:00pm and 3:00pm.

Mariam’s focus is on the oldest of Mali’s traditions. Uniquely interested in mining the depths of Mali’s cultural heritage, she is the dynamic front-woman for Orchestra Gold, spearheading the ensemble’s dynamic blend of psychedelic rock and old Malian folklore.
