Habib Koité – at The Cedar
Tuesday, February 25, 2014 - 7:30pm
KFAI is very pleased to sponsor the return of Habib Koité to the Cedar Cultural Center on Tuesday, February 25, at 7:30 pm.
Habib Koité is one of Africa’s most beloved and popular musicians. Called “Mali’s biggest pop star” by Rolling Stone, he has also received raves from publications such as People, Entertainment Weekly, and the New York Times.
He has gained a strong fan base by integrating the rock and folk sounds of the Western world, without watering down his cherished Malian roots. Habib draws on styles from the different regions of Mali, rather than solely on the music of his particular area.
Habib descends from a line of griots, traditional troubadours who provide wit, wisdom and entertainment. His charisma and magnetism translate across cultures.
Full band show!
