Stockholm Tour– March, 2009

Two Rivers musik är en blandning av folk och världsmusik, med rötter i nordamerikanska, västafrikanska,och västindiska musiktraditioner. Mötet av kora (en 21-strängad harpa från Västafrika), gitarr, och röst ger ett lätt och vackert ljud som flyttar mellan kulturer, från Afrika till Amerika, och nu till Sverige.

1. Stockholms Universitet, “Rencontre en Musique avec Ryan Skinner” (talk on contemporary Malian music; live music performed by Two Rivers), 12-1pm. (Free)
