This second installment of the exhilarating musical journey to Acoustic Africa focuses on the richness of the African guitar tradition. Sunday’s show features Habib Koité, the Malian superstar whose exciting concerts have endeared him to audiences worldwide, Oliver Mtukudzi, a national hero in his home country of Zimbabwe, and Afel Bocoum, a gentle and unassuming guitarist, singer, and composer from Mali–and a long-time musical partner (and nephew) of the late, great Ali Farka Toure. The three artists, backed by a traditional African band, unite in song in a collaborative performance that honors their African heritage while simultaneously pushing at contemporary musical boundaries.
