Trio Da Kali is a griot music group from Mali constituted of three members: Hawa Kassé Mady Diabaté, Lassana Mamadou Kouyaté and Mamadou Diabaté. The latter is the son of the Ngoni master Bassekou Kouyate.
Da Kali means 'to give a pledge' – in this case to a musical heritage that dates back to the time of Sundiata Keita, founder of the great Mali empire in the early 13th century.
The trio has collaborated with the American string quartet Kronos Quartet and toured in many cities across the world.
