5.0 out of 5 stars beautiful, 5 July 2006

(VINE VOICE)   
This review is from: Djelika (Audio CD)
lovely album from the kora maestro from Mali.

the sheer intricacy and timing that Diabate applies to playing the kora (a type of African instrument most closely resembling a harp) is hard to comprehend if you haven't seen him playing it live as i did recently.

he also applies his craft to some wonderful pieces of music

he's accompanied on this album by some marvellous but minimal additional instrumentation, this is the perfect music to accompany your most relaxing and reflective moods

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you Michael Palin., 8 Dec 2010
This review is from: Djelika (Audio CD)
I first heard about this artiste and album whilst reading one of Michael Palin's books, thanks again Michael, and sampled the tracks on Amazon. WHAT AN ABSOLUTE DELIGHT! A completely different sound, charming, restful, close your eyes and you will think that you are in Mali, I did.

Better still have a nice meal with a bottle of wine at home and put his on and enjoy.
