Killer comp showcasing the rich history of musical innovation from Mali - arguably the most sophiscated form of African music. Vik Sohonie & Dave Buttle have put together a collection of tracks from across the country steeped in Malian culture, and, in particular, the immense hypnotic beauty of Malian music. Featuring Malian musical legends such as Sory Bamba, Rail Band, Mory Kante and Salif Keita, as well as lesser known gems from Idrissa Soumaoro et L’Eclipse de L’Ija. Absolutely essential compilation from Mr Bongo!
