Saturday, July 23, 2011

Listen to new music from the West African country of Mali, a veritable hotbed of great voices and great instrumentalists.  For this New Sounds, we’ll hear both the latest from Bamako-born Oumou Sangare ("The Songbird of Wassoulou") - "Seya," and Vieux Farka Touré (son of Ali Farka Touré) - "Fondo," along with something from the kora master Toumani Diabate. Plus, Nigerian kora player and composer Tunde Jegede offers a gorgeous reading of minimalism with Malian Royal Court Music, and more.
