Amoeba is proud to be a sponsor of Joe Driscoll and Sekou Kouyate with folk singer/songwriter Vikesh Kapoor at Grand Performances in Downtown Los Angeles on Friday, August 15 at 8 p.m. As always with Grand Performances, the show is free. You can RSVP on Facebook here.
Syracuse-born Driscoll is an American musician who uses everything but the kitchen sink in his songwriting, employing acoustic guitar, loops, beatboxing and rapping in his music, which fuses elements of rock, reggae, soul and folk. Guinea-born Kouyate is a virtuosic kora player from a lineage of famous players of the classical African stringed instrument. The album, Faya, released this year, sees the two collaborating as Driscoll spits verses over Kouyate’s lightning-fast riffs and velvety vocal tones.
Watch the the title track from the duo’s Faya album below:
