Habib Koité & Bamada

24th November 2022

20:00 - View all performance times

Turner Sims Concert Hall , Southampton University University Road

With support from Sura Susso & Jally Kebba Susso

Habib Koité is one of West Africa’s most popular musicians, and one of Mali’s greatest guitarists. He’s performed more than 1500 concerts around the world in a career spanning four decades, and enjoyed international recognition – particularly in the US where he counts Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, Eric Bibb and Jenny Lewis among his collaborators.

It’s his enduring fascination with Mali’s rich musical traditions and instrumentation that is central to his continued success. These sounds permeate his latest album Kharifa, recorded in Bamako in 2019 with guests including Toumani Diabaté among others.

Habib Koité and his band Bamada will be supported by Gambian kora masters Sura Susso and Jally Kebba Susso – cousins from the same family of griots, and each prodigious talents in their own right – completing an evening of captivating West African sounds.
