Never miss another 'Joe Driscoll & Sekou Kouyate' show
Joe Driscoll & Sekou Kouyate
They may not speak the same language but there's certainly no crossed wires in this winning collaboration between Guinean kora player Sekou Kouyate and New York-based guitarist, rapper and beatboxer Joe Driscoll. "While acoustic guitar and kora converge, Driscoll deftly drops swift-syllable rhymes, providing an urgency that's a perfect counterpoint to the mellow instrumentation", says Womad's Nige Tassell. This is a Hall 2 show.
Joe Driscoll, the man Cee-Lo Green labelled 'the gangsta with an iron lung' is originally from Syracuse, upstate New York. Joe's music entails the familiar mix of rapping, folk and blues, recognisable, yet very different.
From Conakry, Guinea, Sekou Kouyate, is a member of renowned band Ba Cissoko and is known in France as the 'Jimi Hendrix of the kora'. The comparison comes from his unique style of playing with various effects, in a variety of genres, and with an extreme intensity.
