This is getting hard for me as a World Beat DJ who mainly plays only African,Latin and Caribbean music on KMUD radio. I'm so happy over 28 yrs ago seven months pregnant we drove the 4 hrs to San Francisco to the Warfield to see Mory Kante. Opening was Bracas, a french gypsy band and Cheb Khaled playing Rai music from Algeria. It was an incredible nite. Every North African in the Bay Area was there. Mory opened his set by playing numerous pieces on his Kora. It was so riveting that you couldn't hear a pin drop. Absolute silence only his Kora.......... I remember it like it was yesterday......
He is making his way to the spirit world where he will be greeted by the spirits of many African musicans........ Another tribute show so soon............
