Sidi Touré – "Mon Pays"
- Originally from: Mali's northern Gao region
- Early interest in music: he made his first guitar as a child
- Musical roadblocks: as a member of a noble family, he was encouraged to pursue other professions
- He rebelled by: joining the school band, becoming internationally famous
- Most recent album: Alafia, meaning "peace," released in September 2013
- It was recorded partly: in France, to avoid the 2012–13 Tuareg insurrection and subsequent military coup in his homeland
- His music uses a: blues-like, five-note pentatonic scale
- How Allmusic.com describes his music: "[it] bears some similarity to the rhythmically rich American blues of John Lee Hooker and his followers—though [he was not] influenced by them. In fact, indirectly, due to the slave trade of the 18th and 19th centuries, it was the other way around."
The Cultural Center at Eagle Hill
The Cultural Center at Eagle Hill hosts a wide range of community events throughout the year, but they all have a few criteria in common: each performance must be excellent, connect with the audience, and educate viewers. And while many shows support the local artistic community, the Center also hosts exciting performers from around the world. In addition, the space provides the students of Eagle Hill School a place to learn the ins and outs of staging shows, from managing the box office to convincing ambitious floodlights to turn off.
