Vieux Carré regrets to announce that Bassekou Kouyaté and his musicians have not been granted visas to come to the US. We are pleased to have Habib Koité and his percussionist able to share their duo performance as originally scheduled. Habib is a fabulous solo performer that we’re certain you will enjoy.
ABOUT HABIB KOITÉ
“The biggest pop star of the West African nation of Mali” (Rolling Stone), guitarist and singer Koité has headlined festivals around the world with his infectious blend of rock-influenced Afropop, releasing eight chart-topping albums and working with artists ranging from African vocal superstar Oumou Sangaré to Eric Bibb, Bonnie Raitt, and the Art Ensemble of Chicago. A pioneering instrumentalist, Koité has adapted the tuning and playing style of the Malian lute to the Western acoustic guitar, expanding its possibilities.
