Latest update from Africa Oye Festival
🇲🇱 June at the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic 🇲🇱
Bassekou Kouyate & Ngoni Ba
Saturday 3 June 2023, 8pm
Philharmonic Music Room, Liverpool
Bassekou Kouyate is one of the true masters of the ngoni, an ancient traditional lute found throughout West Africa, and is respected as one of Africa’s premier global artists.
His band, Ngoni Ba, includes ngoni players (featuring ngonis with differing tonal sizes), percussionists (talking drum, Yabara, Calebasse) and the amazing singer Amy Sacko. Together they have revolutionised the sound of the ngoni, and radically fired centuries of griot tradition into the future.
