Luka Guindo (Bamako / Mali)
Friday, 3 November, 19:00 – 21:00, Konzertsaal, #1 21st Century World Music, Concert
The Fasokan LP (Sahel Sounds 2017) by rapper, instrumentalist and sought-after Bamako-producer Luka Guindo aka Luka Productions, is a quirky gem: New age music from West Africa, transforming ancient music into the 21st century. Lush and hypnotic dreamscapes combine traditional instrumentation with sweeping electronics, field recordings, and soothing affirmations in these original compositions. Meditative and cosmic, Fasokan guides the listener through ways of living, from the village life into the modern world.
