Habib Koité and Eric Bibb: Brothers in Bamako
Doors and dinner beginning at 6:00 PM
This pairing of singers and guitarists recalls a musical meeting that might happen on a red dirt road somewhere between Bamako, Mali and Memphis, Tennessee. Mali native Habib Koité is the heir to an ancestral knowledge set to song that places him among the most influential voices of contemporary Africa and a true 20th century griot. Eric Bibb absorbed some of his prodigious talents from his family upbringing, as he is the godson of Paul Robeson and son of folkie Leon Bibb. Bibb is part of a new generation of blues-men without renouncing the legacy of folk and gospel.
