Eric Bibb + Habib Koite: Brothers in Bamako
FRI MAR 8 / 8PM
On the pathways between Memphis & Mali’s capital, Bamako, is the musical crossroad of Habib Koité and Eric Bibb. Uniting two soulful histories into a never-before heard guitar sound that is passionate and ebullient.
Growing up in Mali, West Africa, Koité is heir to an ancestral knowledge set to song that places him among the most influential voices of contemporary Africa. Bibb’s lineage in the traditional blues sound has produced an earthy mix of folk and gospel dating back to the work songs of the deep south. Forging a bridge across the Atlantic, Bibb and Koité are two talents too exhilarating to ignore with this collaboration. Pre or Post-Show Special:
