July 20, 23, and 29. Mali met the Hudson Valley in 2014 when West African singer Mamadou Kelly and his band visited our region and recorded with area players Pete Levin, Jane Scarpantoni, and Duke McVinnie. The fruits of those sessions make up Kelly's new album, Djamila, which was just released on local label Clermont Records and which the vocalist and his group will celebrate this summer with a US tour. The jaunt includes three dates this month at area venues: The Falcon in Marlboro (July 20), Freedom Square in Troy (July 23), and BSP in Kingston (July 29). The Falcon: 7pm, donation requested. Freedom Square: 4pm, free. BSP: 7pm, $10.

    A more serious and committed Hudson Valley musical figure than Decora does not come to mind. Everything the 32-year-old does and says comes with a breathtaking level of locked-down, unwaveringly intense focus.
