Malian powerhouse Bassekou Kouyate and his Ngoni Ba band revitalize the ancient ngoni lute tradition with rock-inflected energy. One of the foremost masters of the instrument, Kouyate has collaborated with the likes of Ali Farka Touré, Toumani Diabaté, Taj Mahal, Youssou N’Dour, and Dee Dee Bridgewater. Comprising four ngonis, two percussionists, and vocals from Kouyate’s wife, Amy Sacko, Ngoni Ba brings its electrifying Malian fusion to Brooklyn.
