The song is I Ka Barra (Your Work), written and composed by Habib Koité, a Malian musician who sings and plays the guitar.  His supporting cast, Bamada, is a group of West African talent, including Kélétigui Diabaté playing balafon.  Koité is known primarily for his unique approach to playing the guitar by tuning it on a pentatonic scale and playing on open strings as one would on a kamale n'goni. Other pieces of his music sound more like the blues or flamenco which are two styles he learned under Khalilou Traore.
