Mali Denhou by Boubacar Traore
Released: Feb 2011
Label: Lusafrica
Mali Denhou is a densely layered cross-cultural conversation that draws diasporic connections between harmonicas and balafons, between country-blues licks and Mandingo folk traditions. Also very present are Traore's legendary masterful musicianship, innovative spirit and desire both to preserve and to create African musical traditions What more should we expect from this self-taught musician who created his own African folk-blues hybrid? Don't miss the rolling, sweltering title track.
