Ba Power is a striking new direction not only for Kouyaté, but for Malian music as well. With his exposure to a global audience and to rock, jazz and blues musicians, he has plugged in and turned it up. This is no longer primitive tribal music, the message of the griots might be timeless, but the messenger is very much a modern musician on a relentless mission to get this music heard.
