Guinea kora phenom Sekou Kouyate doesn’t speak English. American-born, England-based folk-hop songwriter Joe Driscoll speaks no French — Kouyate’s native tongue. Yet that language barrier hasn’t prevented the duo from releasing one of the most dynamic albums in world music this year: Faya. Released on Charlotte’s Cumbancha imprint, the record is a heady yet accessible cultural cross-pollination of spoken word, hip-hop and rock with Afrobeat and reggae. And it’s a stunner in any language. Catch them this Saturday, August 23, as part of the Vermont Music Fest at the Lareau Farm in Waitsfield.
