BAABA MAAL BRINGS TALES FROM THE SAHEL TO THE U.S. THIS OCTOBER; SPEAKING ENGAGEMENTS ON ISSUES FACING AFRICA AND BEYOND

This October, Baaba Maal will be coming to the US to headline a series of speaking dates moderated by renowned music journalist and author Chris Salewicz (The Sunday Times, the Independent, Bob Marley: The Untold Story).

Baaba will discuss his personal experiences growing up in Africa and traveling the world, his views on issues facing Africa and the African diaspora, as well as other assorted issues of the day. During the course of the evening, Baaba will be playing some songs alongside multi-instrumentalist Jim Palmer and his longstanding percussionist Mamadou Sarr.

It's been roughly one year since Baaba Maal toured the US in support of his latest album, Television. This upcoming series of dates will give US audiences a different experience- the chance to hear Baaba's worldly insight and knowledge.
