It's hard to believe that Habib Koité & Bamada have only released three albums over the course of eight years together - that's a remarkably small output for an African artist. But they've played a lot of gigs, and made themselves into one of the best units around, managing the excellent feat of sounding contemporary with (mostly) traditional instrumentation, and keeping a Malian feel throughout the music, from early polemic hit "Cigarette Abana" onward.

Album: Fôly! - Live Around the World (Live), 2001. 2. Netherlands 2. Hi On Line World Radio.
On the live album, Koité’s enduring hit, Cigarette Abana, really comes into its own, kicking off with a Congolese-style improvisation, then exploring Cuban son. "We're really having a good time on that track," laughs Koité, "There've already been three different versions of the song, in fact. And the album is a means of savouring not just Koité's prodigious guitar-playing, but the various musical personalities who make up Bamada, a group who have been playing together for over a decade now. Mixing the complex, urban sounds of "sono mondiale" with the wealth of secular Malian tradition, Bamada have created their own distinctive sound.
