BKO - MALI FOLI COURA (LP)
Second album from Franco-Malian quintet.
Griot traditions meet psychedelic rock
“Mali, Niger & Algeria are producing some of the planet’s most vital rock music – BKO are Immensely rough & tough” (Rolling Stone)
“A fierce modern take on traditional Malian music” (Songlines)
Blending the sounds of the rural djelingoni with the urban donsongoni, BKO combine the Bamana and Mande Griot traditions with a percussive, over-driven aesthetic that pulls them into a more experimental realm, producing an urgent sound that is at home in the bars of Bamako and the forward-thinking clubs outside of their home country.
