In parts of West Africa, poets, storytellers and musicians who maintain oral histories are known as griots. The three-piece ensemble Trio Da Kali is a part of this distinguished tradition, spreading the sounds and stories of the Republic of Mali. In the group’s spirited performances, member Mamadou Kouyaté plucks the strings of the bass ngoni while Lassana Diabaté strikes the keys of the wooden, xylophone-like balafon. Hawa Kassé Mady Diabaté adds vocals, giving voice to a contemporary take on the ancient Malian repertoire. African-influenced classical guitarist Derek Gripper shares the bill at Friday’s concert at Goddard College.
