Habib Koité
ABOUT
 
While many African performers have chosen to try to conquer Europe and North America by incorporating western sounds into their music and others are striving to perpetuate traditional music in a much more rigorous way, Habib Koité has adopted his own highly individual style which is both infused with the traditions of his country and very much in tune with his times.During a career which has produced a total of three albums and countless concerts across the world, Habib Koité has been able to develop his own very distinctive approach to guitar playing in which the influences of his own country can be discerned as well as other musical styles such as blues or even the occasional touches of Cuban or flamenco sounds. You can also find in his music, samples of the rich range of traditional Mali instruments such as the balafon, tamani or n’goni in his music.Musical arrangements that set off his warmhearted vocals to perfection. But it is above all on stage that this virtuoso guitar, who descends from a long line of griots, is revealed.
