N'Famady Kouyaté - Balafon

N’famady Kouyaté is a master musician from Guinea (Conakry), now based in Cardiff, Wales, UK.

We are excited to present a recital on N’famady’s primary instrument which is the Balafon – a traditional wooden xylophone, sacred to West African culture and his family heritage of the griot.

Our Thursday Professional Lunchtime Series is held in the University Concert Hall which is situated in the Main Building (Gilbert Scott), just below the Hunterian Museum.
You can enter the Concert Hall through a new one-way route:
-West Quad through the main door to archive hall, which houses the toilets and Hunterian lift

Please exit the Concert Hall only through:
-East Quad entering through the Hunterian Staircase door
Here is a MAP 

We currently have no requirement for pre-booking your FREE ticket! Just turn up at 12.45pm to ensure your seat. Once the Concert Hall is full to capacity, we will be closing doors. Please note the capacity of the Concert Hall is 128 people and we cannot exceed this. Latecomers will not be admitted.
