Mali is home to some cracking music at the moment
Very, very good.
@simonp Anyone else in particular you're thinking of? If so, will need to check them out.
wow, thanks. maison des jeunes is a really good album.
@tomdwilly well, at the moment you have Amadou & Mariam, Rokia Traore, Lobi Traore (no relation) and Baba Salah for starters all playing a wonderful blend of Malian rhythms and western influences from soul, blues and even Jimi Hendrix
@buzdokuz Great news that you're enjoying the album! @simonp Cheers, my friend. I was aware of Amadou & Mariam but not the others
Rokia Traore is my fave at the moment. Check out her Beautiful Africa album. The Lobi Traore album I've got was released last year posthumously
