Current Listening: The Rough Guide to the Music of Mali

Rough Guide to the Music of Mali

 

Currently listening to this very entertaining piece of culture, The Rough Guide to the Music of Mali. What’s interesting to me is that a substantial amount of Malian music seems to have an American blues influence, something I knew from my listening to Tuareg fusion group Tinarawen. It’s worth suggesting this might be selection bias on the part of the record label. Regardless, it makes for some gorgeous listening.
