Mamar Kassey to Headline Famine Relief Concert
Published September 23, 2005

On October 1st, World Music Institute will present a benefit concert for Niger. The program will feature Mamar Kassey, the acclaimed Nigerian group which is currently making its second tour of the US. Their exhilarating music, often accompanied by dance, is rooted in ancient Fulani, Hausa, Songhai and Zerma traditions and has become the most popular sound to emerge from Niger.

Mamar Kassey was founded by Moumouni (lead vocalist, songwriter, and flutist) in 1995. He plays the end-blown Fulani reed flute (seyse).

The program is part of Daniel Pearl Music Days, an annual event dedicated to the ideals of tolerance, friendship and shared humanity.

Proceeds from this concert will go to Oxfam for famine relief.
