about

An alliance of brothers across bloodlines and generations. The meeting of cultures. A fusion of earthen instruments with mighty spirit and potent intention. Combining the masterful percussion of Biko Casini from Rising Appalachia and the majestic Ngoni and Balafon of Arouna Diarra, these two timeless souls and their band of master musicians have come together to create a musical tapestry, a weave of folk, world, and West African rhythms.
