CAPS artist, Diali Cissokho was invited to perform “African Beat – Hear the History!” at the Nasher Museum for Family Day in January.

Participants enjoyed singing in Wolof, clapping various rhythms, and experiencing West African drumming! Diali performed on the kora, an African harp, and played the djembe, accompanied by Hilary Cissokho and several audience members on various percussion instruments.

Nasher Family Days take place on select Sundays from 12-4 PM. On these days families visiting the museum enjoy live entertainment, create hands-on projects and explore exhibitions with a gallery hunt.
