Malian stars visit Helsinki with new music

Malilainen Bassekou Kouyaté tunnetaan afrikkalaisen luutun eli ngonin soiton mestarina. Kansainvälisesti arvostettu artisti saapuu G Livelabiin maaliskuussa ylistetyn Ngoni Ba -kokoonpanonsa kera. Uusi albumi Miri ilmestyy sopivasti keikan alla tammikuussa, joten luvassa on taatusti tuoretta soundia.

Mali-based Bassekou Kouyaté is known as one of the true masters of the ngoni, an ancient traditional lute found throughout West Africa. He is a virtuoso, innovator and a stronghold of tradition all at the same time. Kouyate and his excellent group Nogni Ba will release their new album "Miri" in early 2019 and in March the group stops by at G Livelab to perform new music.
