Ticket Giveaway! Mali Fest Weekend featuring Fatoumata Diawara and Tinariwen 

April 18-9 2014
Celebrate the music of Mali with Mali Fest Weekend featuring Fatoumata Diawara and Tinariwen

Extending Mali's rich musical tradition, Fatoumata Diawara presents a joyous mix of the vibrant and understated, combining songs about love, politics, and empowerment. With arresting melodies soaring over intricate guitar and drum arrangements, and inspired by the Wassoulou tradition, jazz, and blues, she has created her own contemporary folk sound, with a distinctly African spin on the female singer-songwriter.

Tinariwen is “the most compelling of any band” according to Songlines. They bring thirty years of rebellion, guitars, desert nomad culture, and the real Saharan blues to a sound that recently won them a Grammy for Best World Music Album.

You can enter to win a pair of tickets to Fatoumata Diawara by emailing promotions@eastbayexpress.com with " Fatoumata Diawara" in the subject line. The winner will be contacted April 16, 2014.

Tickets are available for each show individually. Save 20% if you purchase tickets to the whole weekend.
