3 Dots & Gorinto Present Secret Planet: ORCHESTRA GOLD

Gorinto x 3 Dots Present Secret Planet: International Sounds in Rural Spaces is a landmark series of diverse global music performances in rural Central PA, connecting a decentralized consortium of curators, musicians, and producers presenting international performances across the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic.

This Event is Co-Presented by the Centre For The Performing Arts

OG’s vibrant sound is spearheaded by the dynamic Mariam Diakite, whose raw, hypnotic vocals deliver heartfelt and thought-provoking lyrics in the highly symbolic Bambara language. While paying homage to Malian musical traditions, this fierce new sound thrives with heavy swinging rhythms, a funky fresh brass section, and cosmic guitar licks. With the January 2023 release of their third album, Medicine, this profoundly spiritual and dance-inducing ensemble continues their pursuit of spreading healing and community through the universal gift of music.


"This Oakland-based band, who have been around for nearly 17 years, have unleashed an ear-listening experience of pure African psychedelic funk that is hypnotic, jaw-dropping, and right to the point. I’m talking about Orchestra Gold. Combining the traditions of Malian and the usage of Bambara language, it’s all done from the mind of Mariam Diakite. And once she sings, Mariam can knock you down with one massive punch after another.

Spaced out wah-wah guitars, reggae-like brass sections, and bass-like walks, it’s very much opening up a door to a parallel universe, witnessing a young Os Mutantes jamming with Orchestre Poly-Rythmo de Cotonou with David Byrne handling the production sessions, and being an older brother to them.

The band’s third album Medicine, is like a stick of dynamite, waiting to explode at any second. Both Mariam and Californian multi-instrumentalist Erich Huffaker, have kept the Orchestra’s music flowing nonstop with five enduring pieces."

“...pure fire... I want to see this band so bad”
