This attempt at the mixing of two great musical cultures is something of a disappointment as i had expected more from Toumani Diabate who's previous albums i had greatly enjoyed but this collaboration fails to spark. while not being actually bad it doesn't have anything to lift it into the really enjoyable. For those wishing to discover toumani diabate i would suggest you look elsewhere in particular his 'Symmetric Orchestra' album and 'The Mande Variations'.

Arnaldo's sturdy, quietly intense vocals and straightforward melodies are set against complex backing provided by intertwining Diabaté's kora and Scandurra's guitar. Beautiful, poetical, experimental. Arnaldo's lyrics and poetry at its best.

A decent collaboration 2 Jan 2013
By Tinomuvonga Musingarimi - Published on
I am huge fan of Toumani Diabate and will buy anything with his name on it. I say this, so that the reader can understand where I am coming from. With that in mind, I'd also add that I am unfamiliar with Arnaldo Antunes or Edgard Scandurra, since I don't follow Brazilian music.

Is it telling that, after listening to this album, I don't find myself searching for more Brazilian music? Like the other reviewer mentioned, this album is more Brazilian than Malian. It doesn't even really feel like a properly fleshed collaboration. At times it feels like a Brazilian song has the Kora tacked onto it. Kaira, a song from Toumani's debut album sounds completely different and I don't think it comes out of it all that great.

The reason I don't rate this album lower is because, I suspect fans of Antunes and Scandurra will find it very enjoyable and refreshing. Toumani has done collaborations before and I am buying the music because I know the one chance he gets to exert himself will be worth the cost of admission. On Kulanjan with Taj Mahal it was K'an Ben and Tunkaranke. To it's credit, I don't think there is a single terrible track on this album. My favorite track, Neblina de Areia is acoustic and lets the instruments do the talking. Toumani gets his chance to shine as he leads.
Mali meets Brazil 24 Dec 2012

The total here is greater than the sum of its parts as two Brazilian aces are joined by a top Malian player. Not a bad song on the album, which is usually in the traditional realm (and generally more Brazilian than Malian), but fresh-sounding and contemporary at the same time.
