Exhilarating BKO

BKO – Mali Foli Coura (Buda Musique, 2017)

Mali continues to produce some of the most fascinating acts in West Africa. One if the finest in recent years is BKO. The groundbreaking ensemble is back with Mali Foli Coura, a remarkable album where Malian tradition, the blues, spectacular jembe drumming and trance-like electric distortion permeate the music.

The lineup includes Fassara Sacko on lead and backing vocals and Khassonke dunun; Ibrahima Sarr on jembe and backing vocals; Adama Coulibaly on donso-ngoni, lead and backing vocals; Abdoulaye Kone on jeli-ngoni; and Aymeric Krol on drums and backing vocals.
