A modern-day griot descending from a celebrated dynasty, who sings and plays the West-African string instrument Ngoni, known for its haunting desert blues-like sound. Born and raised in Mali, he now lives in Italy and performs world-wide. Baba’s lyrics tell stories of peace, friendship, community, tradition and gratitude. His melodies are like never-ending rivers, full of longing and passion.
