Le Tour Du Monde En 45 Tours (17)

Mar 6, 2013 | Le Tour Du Monde En 45 Tours

« Hèrè » (who means « peace » in bamanan language), the third part of my Malian Tribute.
Bamanan ballads & Wassoulou rhytms!
Some deep blues from bamanan guitarists Lobi Traoré & Boubacar « Kar-Kar » Traoré, n’goni virtuoso Bassekou Kouyaté & kora master Ballaké Sissoko. Plus trance music from the Wassoulou region (next to Ivory Coast frontier) by the divas Nahawa Doumbia & Oumou Sangare and balafon player Neba Solo. I especially drop a song from one of Nahawa’s old tape, recently re-released by great tape collector Brian Shimkovitz from « Awesome Tapes From Africa »!
I closed the selection with a duet improvisation by Kar-Kar & Ali Farka Touré on the beautiful « diarabi »s theme…
