Line up

  • Andra Kouyate ( n'goni bass, voice)
  • Richard Bourreau (violin, kora)
  • Vincent Erdeven (guitar)

The setup is simble: nothing but strings, both ancient and contemporary. Frontman Andra Kouyate is king of n'goni, a prehistoric banjo whose gutty plunk is a jus as earthy as his chanting voice. When not opening floodgates for lightning-fast torrents of kora notes, Richard Bourreau pours rivers of sorrow from his worrying violin. Vincent Erdven's guitar supplies traction in the form of durable, circular riffs. Their fusion is exceptionally natural, whether stylistically centered around Bamako moan to‚ Le droit des enfants or venturing beyond with the richly melodic instrumental „Savaaree". (press review)
