Joe Driscoll & Sekou Kouyate are an unlikely duo. Joe, who grew up in Syracuse, New York and moved to Bristol, England, speaks no French. Sekou, who grew up in Guinea, where French is the official language, speaks no English. When they met at a festival in Marseilles in 2010, they relied on music to communicate. Joe raps, loops, beatboxes, and writes songs. Sekou, known in France as the Jimi Hendrix of the kora, plays the West African harp like no one else. Together, Sekou and Joe blend hip-hop, spoken word, funk, and soulful rock and roll with Afrobeat, reggae, and irresistible African grooves. The World Music Report calls their debut album, Faya, “spectacular,” “sublime,” “brilliant,” and “perfection.”
