Salif Keita’s prolific and rich musical career has endeared him to audiences across the African continent. As the former bandleader (alongside Kante Manfila) of the famed Les Ambassadeurs, Keita’s music embodies Mali’s eclectic musical style—influenced by Arabic, French, Spanish, and Malian traditions—as well as western pop and rock. An official “Minister for Music and Culture,” Keita continues to cross the globe spreading his hypnotic brand of world fusion.
