Renown West African musician Mohamed Kalifa will be performing traditional drum rhythms, songs, and dances from Guinea at the BPL for listeners of all ages. As a past recipient of the prestigious Commonwealth Award for his achievements in the area of cultural education, he continues to share his extensive knowledge of traditional Guinean music as well as his virtuoso performance skills with countless students of all ages throughout the New England area. He is currently an Assistant Professor at the Berklee College of Music and also performs with his traditional ensemble “Spirit of Africa” and his Afropop bands “Afro Manding” and “Koliba Jazz”. This family concert definitely promises to be educational as well as entertaining.
