Cheikh Lô: Africa Live

The concert will be hosted by Cheikh Lô and a smaller version of his group the Band Ndiguel.

“Lô’s voice, variously husky, languid and impassioned, tells—in Wolof and Bambara—of corruption and coups d’état, of the importance of peace, love and spirituality.”—Jane Cornwell, in her review of the album Balbalou, Jazzwise Magazine

Senegalese musician Cheikh Lô is the Spring 2016 Artist-in-Residence with the Institute of African American Affairs at New York University. With over forty years of making music fused with a variety of sounds from West and Central Africa, Lô is one of the the most well-know artists coming out of Africa. The Artist-in-Residence Program was initiated by IAAA in 1996, and has since become one of the most respected and well attended programs at New York University. The audience is particularly attracted to the interdisciplinary nature of the programs curated by the Artist-in-Residence. Cheikh Lô will have other programs during his residency. and will include a discussion of his life in music (April 2); participate in discussions with actor Danny Glover (April 7); and with other music artists (April 12).
