    The music that Bassekou Kouyate and his three ngoni accompanists coax from this simple instrument is extraordinary--intricately woven lines, crisp bluesy riffs and funky ostinato patterns, along with wild, rocking solos. Add lilting griot melodies from Ami Sacko, Kouyate's wife, and driving West African rhythms from two percussionists, and you've got Ngoni ba, one of the hottest bands from Mali. Tickets: $24 general admission, guaranteed seating with dinner reservation, 21+ show
