OKA Premiere: Jah Youssouf & Bintou Coulibaly 'Kahlan'


Husband and wife duo Jah Youssouf & Bintou Coulibaly play a stripped-down, organic concoction of traditional Southern Malian and Côte d'Ivoire sounds. In "Kahlan," the couple seamlessly construct a swaying melody using only finger snaps, Youssouf's calabash guitar, and Coulibaly's voice. The track can be found on their upcoming album Sababou, which was recorded at their home in Moribabougou by Brad Loving (Lobisomem). Stream and grab "Kahlan" below. Sababou is out Nov. 1 in cassette and vinyl form via Tall Corn Music. All proceeds go directly to Youssouf and Coulibaly, and will be used to bring them stateside to tour.
