ABOUT HABIB KOITE

While many Malian guitarists are known for their mastery of their tribes strumming vernacular, Habib Koité has become adept at a number of styles. For him, the common thread is the sound of traditional Malian stringed instruments. Koit seeks to capture those warm sonics on his guitar via the pentatonic scale, and by utilizing open tunings. Whether one understands what hes doing technically, theres no denying the beauty in how his guitar notes and vocals interact with the lush sounds of the xylophone-like balafon and the insistent pulse of his groups rhythm section. – www.habibkoite.com

    Congratulations to Susan M. of Amherst and Mary R. of Montague! Both have won a pair of free tickets to see Habib Koité at the Iron Horse Music Hall in Northampton, MA on Sunday, February 16th at 7pm!

    Susan writes: “My son and I attend events we learn about through Hilltown Families every week! Thanks to Hilltown Families we went to the Birds of Prey workshop at the Greenfield Center School this past weekend (even more interesting and fun than we’d anticipated); we’re finishing up our cards to send out for the Valentines Card swap tonight; we hope to attend a concert at Mount Holyoke of mbira music of Zimbabwe tomorrow evening; and we’ll decorate chocolates at All Things Local on Saturday (yum!) before heading over to the Winterfest (which we already knew about, as it is happening across the street).”

    Mary writes: “Learning a lot about the region as a new resident of the area.”

    Both winners should contact us at hilltownfamilies@gmail.com for directions on how to claim their tickets!
