Sublime sounds from the scene in 70s Mali
– music that's an amazing hybrid of styles, and which has made this album a collector's treasure for years! There's echoes of familiar Mali
modes in the music – especially in the group's use of blue notes – both in the guitar lines, and in the way the rhythms descend deeply – but there's other more exotic elements at play too – especially in the snakey reed lines, which are especially amazing – and almost feel like echoes of 70s Ethiopian music at times! The whole record's got a really unique quality – a blend of modern and traditional styles that's unlike anything else we've ever heard. Titles include "Siseni", "Yere Jabo", "Taasi Doni", "Nyeleni", "Malamini", and "Saajuru".
