Habib Koité, Bassekou Kouyate & Ladysmith Black Mambazo

One of Africa’s most recognized musicians, Mali’s pop icon Habib Koité has a deep and varied musical vocabulary, blending Afro-pop with jazz, rock, and even classical. His intimate vocal delivery blends beautifully with both the modern and ancient musical traditions from which he derives his inspiration. With a rich music lineage going back generations, Koité grew up performing alongside his parents and numerous siblings, cultivating his unique guitar style with his griot mother on and off of the stage.

Habib Koité is joined by Malian musician and master of the traditional African lute (the Ngoni), Bassekou Kouyate, as well as multi-GRAMMY Award winning group Ladysmith Black Mambazo, who have won five Grammy Awards and rose to prominence after being featured on Paul Simon’s 1986 album Graceland. Nelson Mandala once hailed them as South Africa’s cultural ambassadors.
