Kaito Winse

Kaito Winse offers a solo loaded with power, sincerity and sound richness. The tama or ‘talking drum’, the toutlé, the Fulani flutes and the traditional mouth bow accompany his songs which invoke the ancestors and the force of planet Earth.

From an early age Kaito Winse was formed in the traditions of his griot family in the village of Lankoué, Sourou region inthe north of Burkina Faso.

 

As a true modern griot, his music is a unique experience where musical codes shatter to address the depths of the soul. Tradition and spirituality are at the heart of his approach and he seizes it with his singular poetic universe on the album Kaladounia – which means “Here the world” – recalling the importance of the here and now.

Kaito Winse

Labalou Kaito Winse was born in a jeli family from Lankoué, in the Sourou region, northern Burkina Faso. Vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, he masters multiple instruments and easily alternates between calabash, arc bow, Fulani flute, kora and tama (talking drum). His powerful and bewitching voice recalls the intensity of opera voices and invites to listen to messages carrying ancestral truths.

Guardian of the Fulani tradition of his village, he is also a chameleon with an eclectic musical universe. He collaborated for many years with Tartar(e), renowned French writer, actor and playwright (SACD 2015 Street Arts award) and is a member of the experimental noise punk band Avalanche Kaito.

His first solo album ‘KALADOUNIA’ was released in 2020 with Rebel up! Records, receiving enthusiastic reactions, notably in Songlines Magazine and the Transglobal World Music Charts. This album was produced with the support of Muziekpublique and the NGHE media library.

His album reveals the mastery of traditional musical techniques and rhythms, a spirituality rooted in ancestral values of men and nature, and a powerful and striking voice you won’t forget.”
