BKO Quintet’s music is born from a meeting between five established artists:
Ibrahima Sarr, powerful percussionist, masters with ease the sounds of the djembe drum and has traveled the world alongside Oumou Sangare. Fassara Sacko whose voice takes you from aback, differs from other griots in traditional celebrations.Yoro Sidibé’s grandson, Nfali Diakité ,with his infernal « tournes », also sings and plays his donsongoni in animist ceremonies celebrated by his peers. Abdoulaye Kone, master of djelingoni develops a unique psychedelic style. He is the descendant of Djeli Baba Sissoko, and has been solicited before this quintet by great artists like Tiken Jah Kafoly, Salif Keita to tour outside of the Mali borders. Finally Aymeric Krol, experienced of internationals stages grooves on its strange drums. For the past 10 years he often settled in Bamako where he worked with several artists.
