Kora Revolution by Kaouding Cissoko
Released: Jan 1999
Label: Palm Pictures
He's best known as Baaba Maal's kora player, but Cissokho broke new ground with this 1999 solo release. The ethereal kora could slide into new age territory, but this doesn't: songs like "Douwayra Podor" literally throb with energy (and amazing time signatures), while the instrument sounds like a full orchestra, supported by bass, drums and a female chorus.
