Malima Kone

7:00 PM
All Ages

Malima Kone is a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist from West Africa Burkina Faso. Originally from Mali, Malima belongs to the ancient Jeli music tradition of the Bwaba people, whose cultural musical heritage he carries forward while incorporating outside influences. He is one of the creators of the New Jeli style.

His songs embody the timeless messages of hope, compassion, love and of universal understanding and solidarity.
The song, “Yere-Yini” is a testament of his enormous talent and is the perfect introduction for his new release, This Is The Time.
(available everywhere on all musical platforms)

Malima Kone will share the story of the Jeli and his New Jeli style that draws from a music that is as old as time itself.


West African dinner, provided by Sira Kone, will be available in the courtyard beginning at 7:00 PM.
