Corey Harris wants to demonstrate the strong connection between African music and modern black music in the USA. His latest effort was recorded in the state of Mississippi, and in Mali with local musicians. You should listen to the 'African' version of Skip James' 'Special Rider Blues'. In Mississippi, he recorded a.o. with the Rising Star Fife And Drum Band. This album here does not fit into any of the blues categories. It's world music in it's truer sense. Fascinating, moving.
