5.0 out of 5 stars Ali's son shines, 2 Feb 2007
This review is from: Vieux Farka Toure (Audio CD)
I was lucky enough to receive an early release copy of this album, what a corker it is. If your a fan of Ali Farka Toure this is a must have album.

Vieux has his own distinctive style and yet you can hear how his fathers influence and style has rubbed off on him, having his father on the album on two tracks is just gobsmaking too.

Having some other great musicians with him including Toumani Diabaté & the new rising vocal star of Malian music Issa Bamba obviously helps but its still a fabulous first album.

Well done Vieux.

5.0 out of 5 stars Malian Blues, 22 Dec 2005
This review is from: Dimanche A Bamako (Audio CD)
As a keen world music fan I come across many fantastic albums from across the world but this is a must for 2005, Malian blues at its best, this blind couple are the business and to top it off to see them at Womad this year was brilliant, if you only buy 1 world music album this year make it this one.
