Malian guitarist Habib Koité is one of Africa’s most popular musicians. He takes a unique approach to playing the guitar, tuning his instrument to the pentatonic scale and plays on open strings as one would on a kamale n'goni. At other times his music sounds closer to the blues or flamenco. Bringing together different styles, he creates a new pan-Malian sound, reflecting his diverse interests. “My job is to take all these traditions and to make something with them, to use them in my music.”
