Playing California for the very first time, Mauritania’s Noura Mint Seymali will transport Angelenos to the crossroads of Arab and African traditions.

Brought up where the Sahara, the Magreb, and West Africa intersect, the Moorish griot (poet/storyteller) combines a rare classical mastery with beats that speak to global youth culture. Be enthralled by her electro-fusion of traditional Berber music, reggae, Afro-pop, funk, and desert blues.

“[Seymali creates] a mesmerizing tension between ancient and futuristic.”—Chicago Reader

*Arrive early and enjoy a DJ set by Tom Schnabel, of KCRW's Rhythm Planet, starting at 7:00 p.m.
