About DINNER AND SHOW AT LEAVER'S: FROM THE WEST TO THE (MIDDLE) EAST

This is a rare opportunity to see kora player Jali Buba Kuyateh up close in the intimate surrounds of Odessa at Leaver's. Chef Sally Harvey will provide a middle eastern banquet of a dazzling array of flavours, colours and scent. If you're craving a culinary journey without leaving town: look no further.

Jali Buba Kuyateh comes from a famous musical family in West Africa and has been singing, dancing and composing from a very early age. He began playing the kora at 5 years of age and composed three tracks by the age of 10. Now a Malmsbury local, Jali Buba has performed at some of Australia's biggest music festivals, from WOMADelaide, to the Woodford and Port Fairy Folk Festivals.

Born in Casamance, the southern region of Senegal, Jali Buba grew up living between The Gambia and Senegal, within the famous Kuyateh family of Medina Wandifa. All of his brothers and sister play kora, sing and dance. His father and mother are highly regarded musicians known throughout Senegambia and Guinea. His older brother, Jali Lamin Kuyateh, is also a master kora player who performs internationally with his band Silaba.

Zourouna specialises in authentic Middle Eastern, Greek and Eastern Mediterranean music. Zourouna will be sure to accommodate with the highest level of professionalism and authenticity. Their repertoire is uniquely entertaining with traditional and modern tunes from Turkey, Greece, Israel, Lebanon and Syria to name a few. Zourouna likes to take its listeners on a cultural journey with no borders.
