Joe Driscoll & Sekou Kouyate – at the Cedar

Joe Driscoll & Sekou Kouyate
Date: 
Sunday, February 15, 2015 - 7:30pm

KFAI is proud to sponsor Joe Driscoll & Sekou Kouyate at the Cedar Cultural Center on Sunday, February 15.

The well-worn and often overblown expression "music is a common language" has never been more apropos in the case of Joe Driscoll & Sekou Kouyate.

Driscoll contributes the rapping, looping, beatboxing and songwriting talents he developed growing up in Syracuse, New York, and during his own successful recording career.

Kouyate, already a phenomenon in African music circles, has blown minds and ears with his hypersonic electrified riffs on the kora, bringing the exalted West African harp into the 21st Century with use of distortion peddles, effects and previously-unimagined technical prowess.

"A gloriously accessible collision of styles. It's an unlikely collaboration that works, magnificently.” - The Guardian
