Bassekou Kouyate, a giant of the Malian griot tradition and a virtuoso of the ngoni (West African long-necked lute), is widely recognised as a pivotal moderniser of West African griot music. Kouyate blends elements of melancholic blues and rock with the traditional melodies of his homeland, often referred to as Desert or Mali Blues. He has collaborated with music legends such as Paul McCartney and received a Grammy nomination for his second album, I Speak Fula. As part of Culturescapes 2023 Sahara, he offers an enchanting chamber music soirée, featuring his wife, singer Amy Sacko, where he reinterprets the music of his parents.
