Habib Koite & Eric Bibb "With My Maker I Am One"

Clip | 8m 29s

21st-century Malian griot Habib Koite and new world bluesman Eric Bibb join the rhythms of their guitars and voices for some transatlantic blues. Koite's ancestral knowledge set to song places him among the most influential voices of contemporary Africa. Bibb, godson of Paul Robeson, has established his name in the new generation of bluesman without renouncing the legacy of folk and gospel.
