African Night Fever presents African Night Fever: Habib Koité and Bamada

With support from Sura Susso and Jally Kebba Susso.

Habib Koité is one of West Africa’s most beloved musicians, and arguably Mali’s greatest guitarist. He has performed more than 1500 concerts around the world in a career spanning four decades, and international recognition. His enduring fascination with Mali’s rich musical traditions and instrumentation has been central to his continued success. Traditional sounds and instrumentation permeate his latest album Kharifa, recorded in Bamako in 2019 with guest artists that included Toumani Diabaté.

Habib Koité and his band Bamada, will be supported by Gambian kora masters Sura Susso and Jally Kebba Susso. Hailingfrom the same family of griots, each one is a prodigious talent in their own right and together complete an evening of captivating West African sounds.
