Aboubacar Djéliké Kouyate

Aboubacar Djéliké Kouyate originated from Mali and was born into the long line of Kouyate griots, which emerged during the Mali Empire of the 14th century.

Now residing in France, Aboubacar’s music fuses traditional African sounds and instruments with modern day twist on the ancient rhythms and patterns born from Jeli tradition. He brings an exuberant and contemporary interpretation to the traditional 'griot' art form, combining his masterful command of voice, instrument, rhythm, conscious lyrics and fellow musicians into compelling performance that will intoxicate you and get your feet moving.
