Some Music from Kenya and Africa 2/3

Try this music from Mali, some modern, some traditional. It has no connection with Kenya; simply, we like it.

Vocals and guitar, Rokia Traoré: there are three albums: Wanita, Bowmboï and  Tchamantche. They are all wonderful.

The Kora is an instrument with 21 strings which belongs to the Mande people of Mali. The parents of Diabate and Sissoko recorded an album 'Ancient Strings', and so this homage by their children is 'New Ancient Strings'.

Segu Blue features the Ngoni, another Malian instrument, related to the guitar. There are instrumentals as well as songs.
