Don’t miss these two legendary musicians from Mali playing together!

Hailing from the musically prolific West African nation of Mali comes a collaboration that differs from any in today’s industry. Guitarist Habib Koité, among the leading figures in contemporary world music, will be performing with fellow Malian Bassekou Kouyaté, a master of the traditional lute known as the N’goni. The effortlessly talented, Grammy-nominated “N’goni virtuoso Bassekou Kouyaté can make notes bend like light rays in the desert heat (Time Out magazine).”

Opening for this event is Ko-Falen’s friend, Kora player Will Dudley and his new project, Koratet!
