About Habib Koité:

Habib Koité (born 1958 in Thiès, Senegal) is a solo singer, songwriter and guitarist, based in Mali. His band, Bamada, is a supergroup of West African musicians, including Kélétigui Diabaté playing balafon. Habib Koité is known primarily for his unique approach to playing the guitar by tuning it on a pentatonic scale and playing on open strings as one would on a kamale n’goni. Other pieces of his music sound more like the blues or flamenco which are two styles he learned under Khalilou Traore.

Habib Koité‘s vocal style is intimate and relaxed, emphasizing calm, moody singing rather than operatic technical prowess. Members of Bamada play talking drum, guitar, bass, drum set, harmonica, violin, calabash, and balafon. Habib Koité composes and arranges all songs, singing in English, French, and Bambara. Muso Ko is the debut album by Habib Koité & Bamada. Two tracks “I Ka Barra” and “Din Din Wo” are included in the Sample Music package included with Windows Vista.
