Labalou Kaito Winse was born in a jeli family from Lankoué, in the Sourou region, northern Burkina Faso. Vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, he easily alternates the playing of calabash, mouthbow, Fulani flute, kora and tama (talking drum). His powerful and captivating 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.
