Manding Jata, is translated the Lion of Mali, in the Mande languages of West Africa. It is written Mandingue Djata in French speaking countries.
Tahoe Arts Project is proud to showcase the Music, Dance, and Culture of Mali as our 25th year celebration continues on through 2012.
This distinguished group of artists come from the Mande region of West Africa – Mali, The Gambia, Guinea and Senegal. The musicians and singers are from the hereditary “jali” caste with an 800 year lineage as musical historians. Most of the artists have held principal roles with the pre-eminant state sponsored companies of their respective countries.
Come out and experience this extraordinary group of individuals and support the Tahoe Arts Project.
