Bassekou Kouyate & Ngoni Ba @ Rialto Theater, 11/05/11

Tags : 

(Atlanta): Mali’s Bassekou Kouyate is in every sense a griot for the global age: traveling the world forging musical alliances between the ancient and the modern and charging Africa’s famed string instrument, the ngoni (ancestor of the American banjo) with rock and roll power and blues inspirations. Fusing age-old rhythms and modern rock energy, it’s no wonder Kouyate records for Sub Pop—the Seattle-based label that gave the world grunge. Always committed to exploring and expanding the possibilities of his instrument, Kouyate is a marvel to behold.
