Not since Ali Farka Tourè collaborated with Ry Cooder back in 1994 has there been an album to rival – or better still – to sit so seamlessly alongside their masterpiece. The album is a timely reminder that while we all may inhabit a planet that is separated by seas and lands, we are in fact much closer to one another than we might be lead to believe.
So, find yourself 15 minutes, sit back and prepare to be sent on a journey.
The album is available through Amazon.
This is what keeps me a world music listener.
What a great way to start the year.
