Uneven but interesting

Verdunguy

I like this album, but I'm not as enthused as Samaraofseil is in his/her review. There are moments of great quality, and moments where a very euro sounding production becomes so slick the strength of the music slides away.

worthy of repeated plays ...

This really is a lovely album and worthy of repeated plays. With the 1st track 'Namo' an instrumental, beautiful as it is, you think it's going to be one thing. But then it shifts gear, and keeps on shifting until you hit 'Dinding Do'. With a distorted kora (not guitar) climax, you know you're in different territory. And although that territory has been sketched by others, e.g. Ba Cissoko, it's never been with quite the same robust and repeatable effect. Add to this tracks such as 'Nkanakele' with some exquisite bamboo flute, or 'Yankouba' with a beautifully restrained but ringing guitar, and you know there's something different working here. Yes, an album to play, play again, and again and ...
