"If you missed the Issa Bagayogo concert at Armstrong Hall on the Colorado College campus last month, you missed one of those rare shows that’s impossible (nearly? truly!) to not love. Bagayogo, from Mali plays the kamele n’goni, a West African folk instrument somewhere between a harp banjo with a gourd for a body, and his backing band included a DJ, a percussionist who played drums with his fists and a keyboard player. Fortunately for you, you don’t have to take our word for it; the Pikes Peak Library District video-taped the show, a portion of which you can watch above to whet your ears."
