BKO (Mali)

  • Volunteer Park Amphitheater (map)

Five musicians perform a contemporary form of music of Mali that they call “Trad Actual Malian Sound.” BKO Quintet brings together the electric urban club sound of Bamoko city with rural music, and combines the Mandinka griot tradition with music of the Bambara people. The quintet features two distinctive vocalists, Fassara Sacko and Nfali Diakite, with powerful percussionist Ibrahima Sarr on djembe goblet drum, master of the djeli ngoni string instrument Abdoulaye Kone, and drummer Aymeric Krol.

Don’t miss this year’s series at the Volunteer Park Amphitheater—fabulous and free! Bring a picnic and experience a musical journey.
