Issa Bagayogo Live at Colorado College from PPLD TV on Vimeo.

If you missed the Issa Bagayogo concert at Armstrong Hall on the CC campus last month, you missed one of those rare shows that’s impossible (nearly? truly!) to not love. Bagayogo, from Mali plays the kamele n’goni, a West African folk instrument somewhere between a harp banjo with a gourd for a body, and his backing band included a DJ, a percussionist who played drums with his fists and a keyboard player. Fortunately for you, you don’t have to take our word for it; KRCC got a great recording of the show that Jeff Bieri will play in its entirety during the afternoon music mix today at 1 p.m. and the Pikes Peak Library District video-taped the show, a portion of which you can watch above to whet your ears.

(Thanks, ever’body, for all your great feedback. We read all of it, even when we don’t respond. Please leave s’more or send us an email to thebigsomething@krcc.org)

    This is the second time a Vimeo embed hasn’t worked on my laptop (new MacBook). I was able to go to the Vimeo website, create a login and watch the last one…

  3. Ann says:

    Does he have any CD’s available for purchase?

  4. Delaney says:

    It looks like Independent has a few comps he appears on in their used section. Both iTunes and Amazon have three different CDs and one remixed CD available.
