mainstage must see ~ habib koité

Malian guitarist Habib Koité is one of Africa's most popular and recognized musicians. Inheriting his passion for music from his paternal grandfather who played the kamele n'goni - a traditional four-stringed instrument associated with hunters from the Wassolou region in Mali, Habib Kiote takes a unique approach to playing guitar. He tunes his instrument to the pentatonic scale and plays on open strings as one would on a kamele n'goni. At other times Habib plays music that sounds closer to the blues or flamenco with a restrained and intimate singing style that varies cadenced rhythms and melodies. 

91.3 KBCS Welcomes Habib Koité on February 6, for TWO SHOWS, 7:30PM and 10:00PM {21+} $25 advance/$30 day of show ::: tickets here>>
