Malian guitar master, Habib Koite is opening a four-night run at Jazz Alley tonight. He'll be performing with his band, Bamada, at 7:30 and 9:30 through Saturday and at 7:30 on Sunday.
His latest release, Afriki, was released on the Cumbancha label last fall. It's a beautiful blend of traditional music from Mali and western rock and folk sounds.
Habib has performed on the David Letterman show and recorded with Bonnie Raitt on her 2002 release, Silver Lining. The guy's getting around and you don't want to miss this performance.
Tickets are $26.50.
