EZ BA aka Amkoullel live at The Gregson

Saturday, September 19 at 7:00pm – 9:00pm

EZ BA a.k.a Amkoullel first graced the shores of Liverpool when he performed at Africa Oye in 2011. He is without doubt one of the most talented African hip-hop musicians of his generation. His sound is rooted in both traditional griot music from the Mandé Empire and current global hip-hop culture.

A socially engaged artist, Amkoullel brings messages of unity and positive progress for contemporary Mali and Africa. He has performed at numerous festivals around the world, such as the Festival in the Desert (Mali), the Nice Jazz Festival (France) and the Ollin Kan Festival (Mexico). Since 2013, Amkoullel has been in demand in the United States as Mali’s most influential musical voice.

He has performed at the Brooklyn Academy of Music and the Lincoln Center in New York City, and the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. Amkoullel is also available on Netflix in the MTV documentary series “Rebel Music” (the Mali episode), filmed in Bamako. As well offering a rare live UK performance, Amkoullel will also speak on social and cultural issues related to contemporary Mali.
