Oumar Konate


This young Bamako guitarist takes the tradition of players like Ali Farka Touré and Amadou Bagayoko to a grittier place on his impressive new Addoh (Tears). Recorded during Mali’s 2012-13 political crisis, Konate sings for peace, tranquility, and the love of a good woman. Traditional instrumentalists and the Debo Band horn section, who may or may not be among tonight’s advertised “special guests”, accompany him.
