I didn't just move on because of the sun. I really wanted to see Kora Konnection at the Lagniappe Stage. That was wonderful.
From the Kora Konnection website:
"Kora Konnection is an exotic blend of West African Mandinka music and Jazz Improvisation. It has a unique sound that spans the cultures of two continents. The band is led by two griots (oral historians): Morikeba Kouyate, a kora (African harp) master from Senegal, and Thierno Dioubate, a balafon and djembe master from Guinea. Kora Konnection includes two of the finest jazz musicians in the city of New Orleans, Tim Green on saxophone and Vince Mitchell on bass. Kora Konnection ‘s architect, and heartbeat of the ensemble, is African percussionist Jeff “Papafrog” Klein . Read more on the Band’s Biography Page Here."
