“Mali, Niger & Algeria are producing some of the planet’s most vital rock music – BKO are Immensely rough & tough” (Rolling Stone)_x000B_“A fierce modern take on traditional Malian music” (Songlines)
Blending the sounds of the rural djelingoni with the urban donsongoni, BKO combine the Bamana and Mande Griot traditions with a percussive, over-driven aesthetic that pulls them into a more experimental realm, producing an urgent sound that is just at home in the bars of Bamako as in the forward-thinking clubs outside of their home country.
