the scoop:

Noura Mint Seymali is a nationally beloved star and one of Mauritania’s foremost musical emissaries, having begun her career,  aged 13, as a supporting vocalist with her legendary step-mother Dimi Mint Abba.  Reared in a culture of collision where sounds from across the Sahara, the Magreb and West Africa coalesce in the dynamic language of the Moorish griot, Noura’s success stems from her ability to combine a rare classical mastery and a griot’s cultural authority with musical idioms that speak to the emergent realities of youth culture in West Africa and beyond.  There is a kids show at 10 a.m. and an evening show at 8 p.m.
