Salif Keita and Youssou N'Dour at the N.C. Museum of Art; Kids' cookbook author Julia A. Monroe at the Cary Barnes & Noble

Friday, August 4 



N.C. MUSEUM OF ART--World-renowned African musician Salif Keita has long been in the business of making magical, soulful Afro-pop with an infectious world beat. Acclaimed by critics and fans alike as the "golden-voice of Africa," Keita got his start in the late '60s with the influential Rail Band of Bamako before moving on to a solo career of his own. Here he joins with Senegal-born vocalist and band leader Youssou N'Dour to bring the Triangle a taste of the beats and rhythms of the African continent. A free screening of the documentary Festival in the Desert will be shown before the concert. Tickets range from $7.50 to $20 with film at 6 p.m. and music at 8 p.m. --Kathy Justice
