Habib Koite and Eric Bibb Play the Boulder Theater, 2/13
Z2 Entertainment will present Habib Koite and Eric Bibb: Brothers in Bamako to the Boulder Theater on Wednesday, February 13th , 2013. Tickets will go on sale to the public on Friday, November 9th, 2012 at 10:00 am for $20 general admission seated, $25 reserved & $35 gold circle.
“I watched my parents and it rubbed off on me”, this is how Habib Koite traces the origins of his profession and talent as a 20th century griot. He is the heir to an ancestral knowledge set to song that places him among the most influential voices of contemporary Africa. Eric Bibb, who also absorbed some of his talents from family, he is the god son of Paul Robeson, has established his name in the new generation of blues-men without renouncing the legacy of folk and gospel.
So, what could be more natural than for this Malian and African-American and join the rhythms of their guitars and voices in some transatlantic blues?
