A Sounds and the City Exclusive Interview

Linda J. Albertano and Prince Diabate

Linda J. Albertano expounds about trips to West Africa, and playing the kora with Prince Diabate

I first saw Prince Diabate perform at an event for the Dalai Lama’s citywide World Festival of Sacred Music held in LA in 1999. I was mesmerized. I was flattened by the cascades and crescendos of celestial sound that flowed from his exuberant kora (West African harp). It sounded like angel tears bursting into fireworks of joy!

The Break up by William Wray

New Year ART REVIEW of “The Breakup” by Super Hero William Wray – watch the artist paint

What is the best advice you can give? Expect repeated short-term failure in your career. Think about your long-term goals. Don’t have children if art is the most important thing in your life, unless you are wealthy.

TribeLA Magazine: Arts, Cultures, Lifestyles

One of the goals of TribeLA Magazine is to bring more ART into our lives, our homes, and our workplaces. Research has proven that art improves creativity, productivity, and even helps the healing process.


ART TODAY is an opportunity to interact with some of the finest artists in L.A., and around the world. Each week, we feature a different artist, highlighting their work along with a get-to-know-the-artist overview.

We are launching TribeLA Music to give up-and-coming and established artists a platform to project their creative voices in addition to their musical talent.

This summer, TribeLA Magazine contributor Natalie Durkin’s song of the week will help us uncover some of the brightest stars in our city, both established and emerging. Catch a podcast, new music, and meet the musicians right here at TribeLA Magazine.
