We're big enough to admit when we've screwed up, and boy did we by not getting to this fantastic collabo sooner. Perennial innovator Toumani Diabaté cozies his considerable cross-cultural skills up to Brazilian guitarist Edgard Scandurra and poet/singer Arnaldo Antunes. We get silky kora waterfalls, Antunes' grave basso, salty slabs of blues, flowing psychedelia that veers between samba and Sgt. Pepper, dramatic hacienda western. It's a dizzying ride at times, but you won't mind with head-spinning tracks like the fierce, revamped flamenco "Cara" or the gorgeously melancholic "Coração de Mãe."
