“His reputation as a guitar player has become almost mythical.” —New York Times
Blessed with a sweet, intimate voice, Malian guitar virtuoso Habib Koité has become one of the leading figures in Afro-pop. Backed by his band, Bamada, he creates a sparkling modern sound that draws on several styles of traditional Malian music along with touches of blues, jazz and rock.
