CHILLI FRIED NORTH PRESENTS THE UK DEBUT OF THE MALIAN SENSATIONS

WEDNESDAY 11TH JULY 2007

LIVE ON STAGE: BASSEKOU KOUYATE & NGONI BA

+ RESIDENT DJ: JAMIE RENTON



Chilli Fried, the UK's leading global beat session, is proud to present the UK debut of Bassekou Kouyate & N'Goni Ba, direct from Mali. Bassekou is the master of the ngoni (West African lute) and has played with big names such as Ali Farka Toure, Toumani Diabate and US bluesman Taj Mahal. This year saw the release of his debut as leader, the highly acclaimed Segu Blue (Out Here). Already hotly tipped to top many an Album of the Year list, the CD was produced by Lucy Duran and features a revolutionary all ngoni line-up.

Tonight offers a unique chance to catch the band playing a special intimate set at Clerkenwell's coolest Bedouin basement bar, the first date on a UK tour that sees them playing major venues and festivals.

All this + resident DJ Jamie Renton spinning global beats and roots rhythms.

...Just one thing though. I've just checked my diary and Thursday is the 12th. So is it on the 11th or 12th?

Wednesday not Thursday

Thanks for pointing that out Howard. I've now edited to give the correct day Wednesday 11th ... that'll teach me to do rush things onto this forum when I'm at work!

Wouldn't it be great if Ahmed could be persuaded to finally instal some stage lighting for this? In an otherwise excellent venue, it's very frustrating having to peer from the brighter part of the room into the darkest corner to figure out where the sound of music (as opposed to The Sound Of Music) is coming from.
