Lansiné Kouyaté, the Malian balafon maestro, will collaborate  with French electric vibraphone player, David Neerman, in a concert on Saturday, November 16 at the Alliance Francaise in Accra.


Sponsored by Institut Francais, the 8.00pm concert is expected to see the two brilliant players put the audience in what the event organisers refer to as “an hypnotic trance with a unique sonic landscape beyond african music, rock, jazz and electro.”

The duo are on an African  tour that will also take them to  Chad, Equatorial Guinea, Benin,  Côte d’Ivoire, Burkina-Faso, Senegal, Gambia and Mali.

Curtain- raiser for the concert will be an Accra-based Japanese couple, Masa and Hirono, known together as Tayuta.

The couple is said to offer delicate doses of soul, Afro beats, and world music fused with  messages of peace and respect for mother nature.
