“Through technique, technology and open ears, Mr. Kouyate hurls the ngoni into the 21st century.” —The New York Times

One of Africa’s greatest instrumentalists, Bassekou Kouyate is joined by his band Ngoni Ba for an acoustic program that reveals the softer sounds of Malian music. Bassekou is a virtuoso picker and is renowned for his mastery of the ngoni, an ancient traditional “spike lute” and an ancestor of the banjo.

This program is part of the Mali Now festival celebrating contemporary Malian music, culture, and politics.

Tickets to this event include Museum admission.
