GUINE BISSAU: KIMI DJABATÉ
Kimi Djabaté is a guitarist, percussionist and balafón (African xylophone) player from Guinea-Bissau, a former Portuguese colony in West Africa. Djabaté’s music is enchanting and melodic, with touches of Afro-Latin swing accenting the gentle sounds of the balafón. Fans of Habib Koité, Toumani Diabaté, Cesaria Evora or Sara Tavares will find much to love in Kimi Djabaté’s stunning songs.
