Habib Koité

The sweet 'n' smooth Mali guitarist brings his new band to town for the first time. Gone is amazing balafon player Kélétigui Diabaté; newly onboard is Issa Kone, a guitarist who doubles on banjo. Koité's new album, Soô, meaning home, was recorded in his living room and has a vibe to belie Mali's chaotic political situation. Best of all, though, Koité has switched from nylon to steel strings, a crucial difference in both sound and attitude.
