Djeneba & Fousco
Where urban and traditional genres meet.
Discovered very early on by Ballaké Sissoko, Djeneba & Fousco embody the Africa of the 21st-century where urban and traditional genres meet.
Djeneba, her voice at once childlike and rock-infused, brings her lyrical flights to the beats laid down by Fousco, one of the best songwriters in Mali today and a brilliant guitar and vocal improvisation virtuoso.
In town and on stage, this new duo of Malian music express the new generation’s desire for freedom, but also pay tribute to great figures of the past, such as Ali Farka Touré.
