Mamadou Kelly

Legendary Malian musician Mamadou Kelly comes to Zenbarn in Waterbury Center on Saturday, Oct. 20 at 9 p.m. Mamadou Kelly has played with some of the most famous musicians on the African continent, including Ali Farka Toure and Afel Bocoum. Mali is the home of Timbuktu and considered one of the music capitals of the world, where one can trace back the roots of American jazz and blues in the musical traditions being kept alive by Kelly and others. With roots in traditional West African music and modern influences, Kelly and his band have been ambassadors for the culture and music of West Africa around the world for many years.
