The Artist-in-Residence Program, first initiated by IAAA in 1996, has become one of the most respected and well attended programs at New York University with audiences particularly attracted to the interdisciplinary nature of the programs. This semester we welcome Malian musician superstar Rokia Traoré. Through three programs curated by her, she shares her work, ideas and philosophy as an international arts and culture advocate who promotes making a positive difference through the creation of venues dedicated to the community, and through critical thinking through the arts and culture. Programs moderated by Michael E. Veal Professor of Ethnomusicology at Yale University.
