Mariam has traveled extensively within her country and throughout West Africa representing the unique style of Malian dance and song. She managed to secure a highly coveted artist visa to work with Orchestra Gold and is part of only a handful of Malian artists in the area. Mariam Diakité and Orchestra Gold play a unique blend of old Malian folklore, and psychedelic analog rock.
To continue this work, Mariam's visa will need to be extended but it is a costly process. There are filing fees, legal fees, and federal fees as well as the time to make a case for her work and importance. We are asking for any financial help our community can offer so that we can put together a competitive application and Mariam has a chance to stay.
