Assane Kouyate Live at the Outpost!

Assane Kouyate will co-host a West African musical performance on Saturday October 25, 2008 from 7:30 p.m. The event will be held at the Outpost Performance Space, located at 210 Yale SE (2 blocks South of Central) and will combine the talents of West African artists — Pa Bobo Jobarteh, Bekaye Kouyate, Male Fainke, Kobiana Nakigan and local Albuquerque drummer Heidi Alina and dancers. 

Kouyate is very famous in his native country for his music and dancing. He comes from a long line of “Griots” – the historians and genealogists of West African culture and has traveled the world as a lead dancer and choreographer with Le Ballet National du Senegal. Now residing in Albuquerque, Kouyate is committed to educating people about his culture and sharing the profound beauty of his art.
