Andra Kouyaté

Andra Kouyaté & Magic Fɔli

Andra Kouyate is happy to present his brand new band: with a funk and groove move, this band also keeps a powerful African touch through complex rhythms, a modern urban feel and all the warm spirit and energy of the Manding tradition.
Andra Kouyate composes, writes, arranges and performs: this is for him the way to revisit all his jazz, blues, reggae and funk inspirations on traditional instruments and invent a new language for new instruments.
He quickly made a name for himself next to the greatest World Music artists thanks to his impeccable technique and his own very particular artistic identity.
Andra Kouyate’s joy is to show how traditional instruments can be used without any limitation in the most various music styles.
“Innovative” might be the best word when describing Malian Andra Kouyaté’s approach to music. Kouyaté is an inventor of instruments and musician who isn’t afraid to take the traditional musical foundations and push them into new, contemporary arenas" " Saxonbaird" Afropop
