Bassekou Kouyate & Ngoni Ba

Bassekou Kouyate, back once again with his mighty band Ngoni Ba, has a new album for us all to enjoy: Miri. The amplified ngoni leads things, blending roots and blues influences with plenty of intricate playing. He really is the ngoni maestro. Multiple guests include Majid Bekkas and Abdoulaye Diabate. Released by Out Here.

Bassekou Kouyate & Ngoni Ba
Ba Power

Bassekou Kouyate and Ngoni Ba team up once again for a wonderful collection of blazing jams, louder and more willing to lean into distortion than ever before. Kouyate leads with his ngoni, and the band follow him with loose-but-tight afro-rock grooves. Jon Hassell and Chris Brokaw are the Western guests making appearances, but the African guests are where it is really at. Ba Power is out on Glitterbeat.
