Presents
Habib Koité and Friends
 
Described by Rolling Stone as "Mali's biggest pop star;" guitarist and singer Habib Koité is one of Africa's most popular and acclaimed musicians. He comes from a noble line of Khassonké griots, traditional troubadours who provide wit, wisdom and music. 
 
One of Africa's most exciting performers, Habib Koite plays music that reflects the diverse musical traditions of his Malian homeland. Accompanied by his band Bamada, Habib has released a number of critically acclaimed albums, and has appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman. Over the past 10 years, Habib has performed over 600 concerts for adoring audiences in far-flung locations including Japan, Australia, Brazil and Kazakhstan. With their engaging stage presence and expert musicianship, Habib Koite and Bamada performances are unforgettable. 
 
At the beginning of this concert, British dance artist Tim Casson and his collaborators will perform THE DANCE WE MADE, a new dance piece made up of moves collected from Zimbabweans on the street during the Festival. 
 
This show will feature other artists collaborating to celebrate our collective creativity!
