Description
Mamadou Diabaté comes from a long line of Malian kora masters. Known as djelis, they are a traditional class of musician-poets who have performed on their intricate, 21-stringed harp/lutes since medieval times. This enthralling solo album earned Diabaté a Grammy nomination in 2005.

"Given the orchestral nature of the instrument, Diabaté can extract endless cascading or speedy chorus after chorus…. He has been sought out by American jazz musicians for his ability to … freely improvise in modern and contemporary jazz contexts…. Diabaté's masterful dexterity and effortless fluidity on the kora are no less than stunning, as he can change gears at will and play as impressively as any electric guitar hero…. This highly recommended recording is a high watermark for the African sounds American audiences are still discovering."—All Music Guide
