The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall presents the soulful folk and world stylings of Rising Appalachia with Guest Arouna Diarra on Sunday, December 13, 2015.
Rising Appalachia blends poetry, narrative, and soul to educate, inspire, and entertain audiences worldwide. To date, the Asheville, NC collective has released five full-length albums, including their most recent LP, "Wider Circles."
The band consists of troubadour sisters Leah Song and Chloe Smith, as well as Biko Casini on percussion, and David Brown on bass and guitar.
Guest star Arounda Diarra is a griot (a carrier of traditions) from the Mandingue culture of West Africa. He performs folk songs that reflect topics from war to love for one another on traditional instruments — the n'goni and the balafon.
