Arouna and Zaza Diarra at the Musical Instrument Museum: Tiny Desert Concert
Arouna Diarra is a 12th-generation musician from Burkina Faso who makes his own instruments — including the kamale n’goni, which is similar to a harp. He’s also adept with a xylophone.
Diarra performed for The Show at the Musical Instrument Museum, and later The Show spoke with him and his wife Zaza to learn about their music and their history together.
