BASSEKOU KOUYATE

Bassekou Kouyate is one of the true masters of the ngoni, an ancient traditional lute found throughout West Africa. He is a virtuoso, an innovator and a fiefdom of tradition. After his last two famous albums Jama ko and the rocking BaPower, Bassekou Kouyate and his group Nogni ba are back with a more subtle and rootsy album: ‘Miri’ (dream in Bamana). An album about love, friendship, family and true values in times of crisis, Bassekou returns to his hometown Garana, a small village on the Niger River. The instrumental song Miri captures this feeling. Bassekou sits on the banks of the Niger away from the noise, traffic jams and political unrest of Bamako and thinks about life.

Un album sur l’amour, l’amitié, la famille et les vraies valeurs en temps de crise, Bassekou retourne dans sa ville natale Garana, un petit village sur le fleuve Niger. La chanson instrumentale Miri capture ce sentiment. Bassekou s’assied sur les rives du Niger, loin du bruit, des embouteillages et de l’agitation politique de Bamako, et réfléchit à la vie.
