Khaira Arby is a dynamic Malian singer with a distinctive style drawing on her mixed ethnic background - Berber and Sonhrai (the late great Ali Farka Toure was a cousin by marriage, and her musical mentor). Khaira and her scorching electric / traditional band, stars of Mali's Legendary Festival in the Desert are touring North America through early October: Khaira is special guest on Sway Machinery's Jewish New Year concert at City Winery Sept 8 and she and band headline at Joe's Pub Sept 29.
Big thanks to our illustrious engineer Ernie Indradat and also Chris Nolan, Khaira's manager in North America who worked tirelessly to bring the band to North America and who joins us to help tell the story.
