Habib Koité

The Clifton Center has just announced that African guitarist Habib Koité will perform on March 2, 2014. Koité is a native of Mali, a country noted for the musicality of its population and which was recently taken over by Islamic militants, who banned public singing and regularly smashed musicians’ instruments. The militants were subsequently ousted by a French force. Koité has a new album, Brothers in Bamako, to add to his list. Tickets are on sale and run $19 through $24
