African music in Davis Square tonight

Boubacar Diabate with Samba Lolo is performing at Johnny D's tonight. The Johnny D's blurb:
    "West African guitarist, singer, songwriter, and storyteller, Boubacar Diabate, along with his group, Samba Lolo, has combined traditional rhythms with modern influences to create his own style of contemporary Malian Griot music. Singing in Bambara, the ensemble creates a performance that spans the full spectrum of Traditional to Contemporary Malian music from West Africa. These songs of a common shared experience of love, life and humanity, give all an opportunity to hear the age-old West African tradition of Griot, storytelling through song."
