info 

This is a special collaborative album between Italian Afro-Futurist beatmaker DJ Khalab and Malian master musician and Griot Baba Sissoko. The sound of the self titled Khalab & Baba album is at once both entirely new while remaining familiar for both avid listeners of electronic music and traditional African sounds. The influence of Amadran, a repetitive and hypnotic musical structure typically found in Malian music gets re-translated in the studio by Khalab to great effect in tracks like “Nana” with it’s repetitious percussion loops, encroaching synth drones, and four to the floor beat. Tracks like “Bognya” and “Magny” with it’s stuttering drums, wailing vocals, and bass growls become more immediate, while “Tata”, “Ko Djodo” and “Lenke” show restraint with a few minimal touches, resting on the traditional sounds and building around Baba Sissoko’s unmistakeable voice and musical talent.
