Aboubakar Traoré & Balima (Belgium/Burkina Faso)

Combination of musicians from Burkina Faso and Belgium brings live music based on West African griot traditions. Band leader Aboubakar Traoré comes from a musical family and plays the kamele n’goni lute, which is a smaller version of the Malian and Senegalese kora. In the pre-COVID era, the band played very often at festivals in Western Europe, as well as in Haiti. They are now looking forward to showing their art to Slovak audiences.
