Senegalese master musician Baaba Maal has been making music for the world to enjoy for nearly two decades. Aside from being a remarkable musician, he is socially conscious and committed to the concerns of families, young people, and the future of Africa. Recent UM graduate Vera Flaig will lead a discussion of where Maal fits in the pantheon of African musicians that have bridged the gap between musical genres and social causes. This event, cosponsored by the University Musical Society, is presented in conjunction with Baaba Maal's April 10 performance at the Michigan Theater.
