Two world-renowned artists celebrate the ties that bind them through their shared African roots. Rolling Stone calls Habib Koite "Mali's biggest pop star;" full of wit and wisdom, the composer and guitarist is a modern troubadour. Vusi Mahlesela - known is South Africa simply as "The Voice" - is a singer-songwriter, poet, and activist who performed at Nelson Mandela's inauguration. Together, they recall rich traditions of voice and sone.
