Performance Update

We regret 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.

Habib Koité exemplifies responsibility and shared experience associated with the historical, cultural, and unifying properties of Malian music. One of Africa’s most recognized musicians, Habib Koité is a modern troubadour with extraordinary appeal because Koité’s musicianship, wit and wisdom translate across cultures. Hailing from the musically prolific West African nation of Mali, the guitarist and composer has been named the biggest pop star of the region by Rolling Stone. Over the past decade, Koité’s artistry and magnetic personality have made him an international star, delighting audiences the world over, and placing him firmly among the leading figures in contemporary world music.

More information can be found on Koité's website.
