Mali: Bassekou Kouyaté & Ngoni Ba - "Siran Fen" – beehype – Best Music from Around the World

Bassekou Kouyaté & Ngoni Ba

Lute virtuoso from Bamako and his family collective Ngoni Ba gave us another great record last year, “Ba Power“, which is his fourth album to date and his debut on the acclaimed Glitterbeat Records.

On this new nine-track release, Bassekou Kouyaté continues his very own explorations of Malian legacy, transporting local tradition and the African rendition of blues into our postmodern century.

One of the highlights from this record, “Siran Fen” sums up Kouyaté’s current sound: stronger and brighter than ever before.
