Griot and Djembefola Mandjou Mara create contemporary music with the Afro-pop group Kikeh Mato. Kikeh Mato means "look at the moon”, as Mandjou notes the power of the moon to provide solace, inspiration, and hope.
Saxophonist and composer Edi Rey brings the Afro-Caribbean music of Colombia to Madison with Son del Atlantico. They play Cumbia, Chande, Cumbion, Vallenato, and Porro fused with funk, rock and reggae.
