Diali Cissokho & Kaira Ba:

Diali Cissokho & Kaira Ba formed after Senegalese griot musician Diali Keba Cissokho moved to North Carolina and began to look for musicians who shared his love and passion for creating music based on African Manding traditions. The outcome of this collaboration is an infectious sound reminiscent of West African dance bands full of unison melody, adventurous improvisation, fiery solos and polyrhythmic frameworks. With lyrics in Manding, Wolof, and English, Kaira Ba illuminates its listeners with stories of ancient and modern West Africa and how they relate to today's universal experiences and emotions felt by everyone, regardless of origin. Kaira Ba invokes the participation of the audience in the creation of captivating musical moments that often incite spontaneous dancing by the performers and audiences alike, helping to create a peaceful and loving community.

Sweet Poison Victim:

Formed by Ghanaian drummer Kwesi Brown, Sweet Poison Victim blend the afrobeat and highlife sounds of Ghana with American rock and soul.

DJ Kyle Long:

A native of Indiana, Kyle Long has always been interested in building bridges between his home state and ideas, people, and music from around the world.

In 2010 Kyle Long formed Cultural Cannibals with visual artist Artur Silva. Kyle Long currently serves as guest musical curator at the Indianapolis Museum of Art and music director for the Mayor's Office of International Affairs' Sister Cities Festival.
