Born and still living in the West African country of Mali, singer/songwriter Habib Koite has a sophisticated guitar- and percussion-based sound, a burnished voice, and an electrifying stage persona. All of this seems to account for his growing U.S. following, as witnessed by a recent 37-city North American tour. He plays live in the WNYC studio on this edition of New Sounds. We also hear music by Myriade, Simon Shaheen, and others.
