Aly Keïta & The Magic Balafon


Aly Keïta comes from the Ivory Coast on Africa’s western shores and is one of the great balafon virtuosos. The balafon is an African xylophone with gourd resonators and is a unique melodic instrument from West Africa. As a child, the impressive musician was already making instruments, and in 1999 he built the world’s largest diatonic balafon to allow for new sound possibilities. Aly Keïta fuses virtuoso balafon playing, oriented towards the traditional African repertoire, with Western jazz, gentle pop and African rhythms. A fascinating musical encounter, in which the Berlin resident creates a connection between the traditional and the modern styles he explores with the balafon. His band also won the 2nd Creole Global Music Contest!
