Habib Koité & Eric Bibb

February 27, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 12:00 am


21st century Malian griot Habib Koité joins new world bluesman Eric Bibb on the road between Bamako and Memphis. Expect an evening of magical cultural exchange as these two masters join the rhythms of their guitars and voices for some transatlantic blues.

Habib Koité traces the origins of his profession and talent as a 21st century griot to an ancestral knowledge set to song that places him among the most influential voices of contemporary Africa. Eric Bibb, who also absorbed some of his talents from family, he is the god son of Paul Robeson, has established his name in the new generation of blues-men without renouncing the legacy of folk and gospel.
