Bassekou Kouyate and Ngoni BaFrom Mali
Saturday, March 27, 8:00 PM
55 Davis Square
$25.00 (includes Somerville Theatre $1.00 restoration fee)
The music that Bassekou Kouyate and his three ngoni accompanists coax from this simple instrument is extraordinary—intricately woven lines, crisp bluesy riffs and funky ostinato patterns, along with wild rocking solos. Add the lilting griot melodies from Ami Sacko, Bassekou’s wife, and the driving West African rhythms of a percussionist, and you’ve got one of the hottest new bands from Mali.
