Nightlife Highlights: Oumar Kunate

October 12. The crazed militants in Mali have declared open war not only on those who disagree with their skewed ideas of religion, but also on native musicians. Coming to play for us from that strife-torn country at the Bearsville Theater this month is the amazing young singer and guitarist Oumar Konate. A featured act at his homeland's world-renowned Festival in the Desert, Konante has accompanied such famed Malian artists as Vieux Farke Toure, Sidi Toure, Khaira Arby, and others. Addoh, his debut on area imprint Clermont Music, combines ancient and modern instruments. "And through it all," the label extolls, "Konate's guitar shreds." With Professor Louie and the Crowmatix. (The Both, featuring Aimee Mann and Ted Leo, visit October 3; the Woodstock Jazz Festival, with John Scofield, Jack DeJohnette, John Medeski, and more, swings October 4.) $20. 7:30pm. Bearsville. (845) 679-4406; Bearsvilletheater.com.
