2014 World Music – Toumani Diabate – Toumani & Sidiki – Beautiful Music from Mali!!

Toumani and Sidiki

Yesterday, I took a quick look at the World Europe Music Chart to search for some new music. I stopped at No.1 -Toumani &Toumani and Sidiki Sidiki. I knew the name Toumani but I was not familier with the second name.I couldn’t quite place the name Toumani but a quick Google search reveal that Toumani is a Mali kora player. With that information, I remembered that my introduction to the music of Toumani was in reference to the Derek Gripper album One Night on Earth:Music from the Strings of Mali that I first listened to last November. Here is that review.
