Saturday - 7:00 PM | Sunday - 4:00 PM Harold M. Williams Auditorium, Getty Center Free Event; Ticket Required Sounds of L.A. 2020 kicks off with African stringed-instrument virtuosi. Formed in 2006, 3MA features Ballaké Sissoko on kora, Driss El Maloumi on oud, and Rajery on valiha—an instrument described as part-zither, part-lute. The three, hailing from Mali, Morocco, and Madagascar, regularly meet to perform together and create new compositions inspired by their respective traditions and deep friendship. Amoeba Music calls their latest album, Anarouz (released by Six Degrees Records), "pure magic ... peaceful music for a violent world." This band of brothers has developed a shared musical language brimming with energy, harmony, and poetry.
