Massey Hall presents Lunchtime Live! at Yonge-Dundas Square

'Cheka' Katenen Dioubate was raised by the Manding people of the ancient city of Kankan, Guinea in the tradition of the Jeli or Praise Singer.

Born into a musical family, Cheka was encouraged to adhere to Manding cultural traditions and hold an honoured place in society. Musicians and griots residing in her area passed on the ancient traditions, history, improvisation and storytelling techniques.

Cheka’s main instrument is her voice, she also dances, plays keyboard and traditional percussion instruments from the Guinea region of West Africa. Her second album, Bimogolaunches May 23, 2015.

Lunchtime Live! Every Monday - 12:30pm
Got a case of the Mondays? We’ve got just the fix. Take your lunch in Yonge-Dundas Square Mondays throughout the Spring and Fall to see more great music from artists like Toronto’s own Taiko drumming ensemble Nagata Shachu, modern Filipino tribal music crew DATU, aboriginal cellist Cris Derkson, and others. In the Fall, the series features a very special residency from our friends at Dine Alone Records in celebration of their 10th anniversary.
