Two of Mali’s biggest stars, Habib Koité and Bassekou Kouyaté, come together with a full band for an extraordinary evening of African music. Koité is a guitar virtuoso and modern troubadour with a sweet, intimate voice. Kouyaté is a master of the ngoni, an ancestor of the banjo. Both musicians have blurred the lines between West African and American roots music, creating intricately woven lines and crisp bluesy riffs.

You might also like 3MA, Fatoumata Diawara, Derek Gripper & African Strings,  Mokoomba,  CRASHfest, or Ladysmith Black Mambazo.
