Habib Koité & Bassekou Kouyate – 7:00 PM

February 22 @ 7:00 pm

One of Africa’s most recognized musicians, Habib Koité is a modern troubadour whose musicianship, wit and wisdom translates across cultures. Hailing from the musically prolific West African nation of Mali, the guitarist and composer has been named the biggest pop star of the region by Rolling Stone. In a collaboration that differs from any other in today’s industry, Koité will be performing with fellow Malian Bassekou Kouyate, a master of the olden lute known as the Ngoni. Kouyate’s involvement with the critically acclaimed film Mali Blues and his exceptional recordings have earned him recognition throughout the world. This collaboration melds innovation with a sense of togetherness.
