Join legendary Mauritanian singer Noura Mint Seymali for a demonstration and conversation about the traditions that have shaped her hypnotic, contemporary brand of Moorish music. Seymali’s songs, pairing modern rhythms with traditional poetry and melodies, present a roadmap forward for Mauritanian music, little known on these shores.

Noura Mint Seymali’s residency will culminate in a performance at Motorco Music Hall in downtown Durham on the evening of Wednesday, March 28 as part of Duke Performances’ Black Atlantic festival. Tickets and info available here.
