Setting the stage for the award-winning film “Keita: Heritage of the Griots,“ renowned Malian artist, author and storyteller, Baba Wagué Diakité, will prepare us with background of the Empire of Mali, and the role of West Africa’s oral historians, known as griots, taking us through ancient times and setting us at the doorstep of the film’s beginning.
The film “Keita: Heritage of the Griots,“ blends modern day and ancient events with magical realism, mythology and history- continuing the griots’ role of relating the history of this great kingdom and its heroes. The film is directed by Dani Kouyate, and stars his father, the great Malian griot and actor, Sotigui Kouyate.

This magical evening also includes live Kora music by Will Dudley, and Malian crafts for sale.

The is family friendly benefit for KBOO and Ko-Falen Cultural Center. In Bambara, the word Ko-Falen means “gift-exchange.” Ko-Falen Cultural Center seeks to promote the cultural, artistic and educational exchanges between the people of the United States and Mali through art workshops, dance, music and ceremony, and also provides youth education and support to the Malian community.
