Muso Ko. Habib Koite & Bamada
Label: World Village
Muso Ko, Habib KoitÃˆ's first release, made him an instant star back home in Mali and it contains some of his best and most enduring compositions to date. Muso Ko raised KoitÃˆ and his group, Bamada, from the status of respected Bamako bar band to national headliners with a budding global career. The album draws upon KoitÃˆ's many years of songwriting and delivers one crowd-pleaser after another. This is a particularly welcome reissue that restores an important world music title to the active catalog.
