BKO Quintets music is born from a meeting between five established artists.

This gathering provides a journey into the heart of the contemporary Mali.

Ibrahima Sarr, powerful percussionist, masters with ease the sounds of the djembe drum and has traveled the world alongside Oumou Sangare. Fassara Sacko whose voice takes you from aback, differs from other griots in traditional celebrations.Yoro Sidibs grandson, Nfaly Diakit ,with his infernal  tournes , also sings and plays his donsongoni in animist ceremonies celebrated by his peers. Abdoulaye Kone, master of djelingoni develops a unique psychedelic style.He is the descendant of Djeli Baba Sissoko, and has been solicited before this quintet by great artists like Tiken Jah Kafoly, Salif Keita to tour outside of the Mali borders. Finally Aymeric Krol, experienced of internationals stages grooves on its strange drums. For the past 10 years he often settled in Bamako where he worked with several artists. Today, his encounter with Ibrahima Sarr gives birth to the project: BKO Quintet.
-After the first EP recorded  Live  in January 2012 in Bamako in the popular district of Medina Coura and the European tour of 25 dates during the summer 2013. BKO QUINTET decides to return in the studio during their tour to record a debut album that will be available in 2014 on label BUDA Musique / Universal Distribution.
