Fifty for the Future Legacy Partner Aga Khan Music Initiative has joined forces with the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland to present Kronos in concert with Mali’s Trio Da Kali for a musically adventurous collaboration.

Longtime collaborators with Kronos, the trio includes Mamadou Kouyaté on bass ngoni, Hawa Kassé Mady Diabaté on vocals, and Fodé Lassana Diabaté, one of our first-year 50 for the Future composers, on the 22-key balafon. Together, their performance will bring a creative twist to the repertoires and performance styles of West African griots.
