Khaira Arby

When: Wed., July 27 2011

When it comes to Khaira Arby, one quote from the New York Times should do the trick: "Her 2010 album, Timbuktu Tarab, was one of the decade's best African albums, and on stage her music was even more electrifying." The opportunity to catch a free performance by the Malian singer and cousin to the late, great Ali Farka Touré is definitely not one to be missed. With her lilting vocals and her band's electric guitar-driven African rhythms, the much-acclaimed diva's performance, which will be the second installment in this summer's World Music Series, is guaranteed to be an unforgettable experience. The show begins at 7 p.m. in, weather dependant, either Armstrong Quad or Armstrong Hall (14 E. Cache La Poudre St., Entry is free, but a donation of a non-perishable food item for Care & Share is suggested. — Bill Forman
