Moh! Kouyaté plus Velvet Alibi
Citizen of the world because of his status as a musician, Moh! Kouyaté shares his vision of a new Africa. He knows through his American and European concert tours that his music is a gift for getting a message across, however it is from his hometown of Conakry, the cosmopolitan capital city of Guinea that the singer draws inspiration.
Sung in soussou, in malinké and diakhanké, these three languages represent the rich culture of Moh’s native identity. His songs continue the epic tales of music from Guinea and a journey into the heart of the Mandingo culture, never departing from the wisdom of a griot. It’s also infectiously funky, if you caught Femi Kuti in 2017 or Vieux Farka Toure in 2016 at the same venue, expect the same non-stop energy and calibre of musicianship of this amazing artist.
Formed in 2015, Velvet Alibi is the groove based music of Anna Nolan and Rohan Armstrong.Their expansive sound merges funky beats and virtuosic improvisation with melodic song-writing and lush vocal harmonies.
