Habib Koité + Nubya Garcia

Konserthuset / Stockholm

Exklusiv dubbelkonsert med Malis gigant och brittiskt jazzstjärnskott!


Exclusive double bill featuring music from Mali and a British rising star of jazz.

Together with the group Bamada, Habib Koité has released multiple top-selling and critically acclaimed albums. He performed on The Late Show with David Letterman and has been featured in magazines like People and Rolling Stone.

Nubya Garcia is a British jazz musician, saxophonist, flute player, composer and band leader. In recent years, she has emerged as one of the most exciting and in-demand modern British jazz musicians.

Now we will get to hear them together at the same concert!

In Habib Koité’s gentle, intimate and personal vocal style and guitar-playing, he unites various styles to create a unique sound that reflects his interest in a wide variety of music. He formed the ensemble Bamada – the nickname for residents of Mali’s capital, Bamako – together with childhood friends. With Kharifa, the latest album released in 2019, Habib Koité has secured his position yet again as one of the greats of the African continent.

Nubya Garcia grew up in the UK to two Caribbean parents. Her childhood was filled with music, including Caribbean and west African influences that now tinge her improvisations on the tenor saxophone.

In 2017, she released the acclaimed debut album Nubya’s 5ive, following it up the next year with the EP When We Are. In 2019, she won Jazz FM’s award for Jazz Act of the Year.

Since her debut, Nubya Garcia has toured the world and worked with musicians of the modern British jazz scene, such as Shabaka Hutchings, Moses Boyd, Sons of Kemet and Theon Cross.
