I've heard some great African albums - Tinariwen's Amassakoul and Boubacar Traore's Mariama for example. This beats the lot and the other Ali Farke Toure albums I've listened to as well. It's more uptempo and rousing than Niafunke or Talking Timbukto with lovely fluid string work. This is truly and wonderful, wonderful album and if you're looking for somewhere to start with African music I heartily recommend it.
