She is a nationally beloved star and one of Mauritania’s foremost musical emissaries, who was born into a prominent line of Moorish griot and began her musical career at age 13 as a supporting vocalist with her step-mother, the legendary Dimi Mint Abba. She soon trained in instrumental technique by her grandmother, mastering the ardine, a 9-string harp.

Noura Mint Seymali and her band lick off their concert of high energy African desert blues at 7pm on Wednesday (April 29). Admission to the all-ages show is $15.

Win FREE Tickets to Walter Salas-Humara @ the Low Beat on Saturday

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015

Singer-songwriter Walter Salas-Humara returns to the Low Beat on Saturday (April 25) in support of his latest album, Curve and Shake. He’s been a regular on Nippertown stages with his rip-snortin’ band, the Silos, since the days of QE2, and his work with that band alone is enough to make this a must-see concert. (Following the release of the Silos’ sophomore album Cuba in 1987, they were voted Best New American Band in the Rolling Stone Critics Poll.)

But along the way, Salas-Humara has also been a member of the Setters (also featuring Alejandro Escovedo and Michael Hall), Woozy (with songwriter Dave Bassett) and I’m Not Jim (a collaboration with acclaimed novelist Jonathan Lethem). And he’s released three top-grade solo albums, too.

The Canjo 10s are slated to open the show at the Low Beat 8pm on Saturday. Advance tickets are available for $10.
