Afrikaba  in association with African Night Fever presents
Habib Koité + Surahata Susso popular kora player and singer
Habib Koité delivers Mali’s most powerful and ancient musical traditions in a style of his own. His singing voice is soothing and intimate with cadenced rhythms and melodies. He tunes his guitar to the pentatonic scale and plays on open strings to create music that is rooted in West Africa, yet at times, sounds closer to the blues or flamenco, styles he learned under Khalilou Traoré of the legendary Afro-Cuban band Maravillas du Mali. Habib’s artistry and powerful personality have earned him the adoration of fans as diverse as Jackson Browne and Bonnie Raitt, both of whom visited Habib in Mali.
