Habib Koite is my favourite artist. His music is sublime and transcendent. He is a playful as he is intense. I love that there is never a bad note in his music; his armaments are perfect. I also love his relaxed and intimate vocal style. More than anything, I love the synergy he has with his band Bamada. Formed in 1988, the band play the talking drum, guitar, bass, drum set, harmonica, violin. calabash and the balafon (played by maestro Keletigui Diabate)
