Tribal Night Brings Music Of The World To Las Vegas

Almost 50 performers will take the stage at Boabab Theater for tonight's Tribal Night. Performers and musicians from Asia, Africa and the Caribbean will jam alongside dancers and fashion models. This semi-regular performance draws from the ranks of the city's Cirque du Soleil performers. Many come from other nations and seek outlets for their creativity. And for listeners who have never heard a kora or a balafon, the performances provide an education.
