N'Faly Kouyaté on why the world needs change

N'Faly Kouyaté is a Guinean artist who has inherited a long family tradition of music-making and story-telling.

His father was a famous griot and N'Faly has carried on the tradition through his genre-defying music.

His career includes a long collaboration with the Afro Celtic Sound System, which fuses West African sounds with Irish music and electric beats.

He has performed all over the world and has a new solo album out this week.

When he came into our studio to meet BBC Africa’s Audrey Brown he started by playing the title track, Change.
