Habib Koité is one of West Africa’s most respected and recognised musicians.
Habib Koité delivers Mali’s powerful and ancient musical traditions in a style all his own. By tuning his guitar to the pentatonic scale and playing on open strings, he creates music that at times sounds close to the blues or flamenco, styles he learned under Khalilou Traoré of the legendary Afro-Cuban band Maravillas du Mali.
Habib’s singing voice is soothing, intimate and melodious, his artistry and persona have earned him the adoration of fans as diverse as Jackson Browne and Bonnie Raitt.
With music featuring on Putumayo World Music compilations and collaborations such as those with blues greats Eric Bibb and Bonnie Raitt, Habib Koité is a name not to forget.
