Cambridge, tonight: Ashley Maher & Balla Tounkara

Two of my favorite musicians that I rarely see, tonight at the Lily Pad:
  • Ashley Maher, afropop/world/jazz singer-songwriter from Los Angeles

  • Balla Tounkara, one of the world's best kora players, originally from Mali but mostly in Boston for the past decade
This is the sort of show I'd go see at Sanders Theatre or similarly sized venues, and it's kind of amazing that it's gonna happen at such a small venue. Ashley's not that well known here in Boston, and Balla plays all over (last time I saw him was randomly in Harvard Square). If you like African music and world music this show will make you very happy!

Lily Pad, 1353 Cambridge Street, Inman Square
Sunday, October 14th, Ashley @7pm & Balla @8:30pm
$10 suggested donation, all ages
