F|O Points on this item

Sourakata Koité was born in 1955 in Malème, Senegal, a Malinke-speaking area. As Sourakata says, "All the Koité are musicians!" He is indeed a member of a family of djéli (or griot in french), the hereditary caste of musician-storyteller-historians in West Africa. 

The album’s 8 tracks feature Koité performing solo on the kora, a Manding harp-lute instrument with 21 strings, while also singing alongside the instrumentals.

Recorded near Delft, Holland in 1984 with two Neumann mics in an old converted chicken coop.
