Description

The 2nd Album by last year's winner of 2 BBC 3 awards for world music, produced by Lucy Duran and Jerry Boys, goes more uptempo and captures the enormous live energy of the band. After his award winning album Segu Blue' the ngoni wizard from Mali is back with a new offering: I speak fula'. The album captures the incredible live energy of Bassekou Kouyate & Ngoni ba and is the next step in the career of one of Malis most exciting and innovative musicians coming out of Africa in the last years. Bassekou has transformed the traditional music of the ngoni into the modern world. With his band Ngoni ba he has created a new lineup as a quartet with a rock band's style of playing. Bassekou opened up the magic of an age-old music, to people all over the world. For Bassekou Kouyate it has been a long journey that started out in Garana, a small village on the Niger river where he grew up, then took him to the town of Segu, capital of his region, and on to Mali's capital Bamako. And now it is taking him and his music around the world. Welcome to a new chapter of this exciting story.
