I've heard he's unlike the others. The others who have African roots, but who put the old western-selling twist on their music in order to be accepted and hopefully, to sell. Habib Koité will play Lupo's Heartbreak Hotel in Providence, R.I., on May 7 at 7:30 p.m.

Having adopted his own unique style, Koité has been able to infuse the traditions of his country with music both, modern and timely, as Simon would say. Proceeds of the concert benefit the Providence-based Global Alliance to Immunize against AIDS (GAIA). Tickets are $35 and $20 for children under 12. For more information contact Lupo's at 401-331-LUPO.
