A mix of some favorite contemporary Malian tracks I recorded in 2005. The mix begins with “Kan Be”, a mesmerizing track by n’goni player Kakanka Sata. The mix concludes with “Tsara”, a deeply soulful and uplifting cut by guitarist/singer Modeste. Ali Farka Toure, one of Mali’s greatest musicians who’s featured on this mix, passed away in March 2006. So this mix is dedicated to the prolific and brilliant guitarist/singer/songwriter Ali Farka Toure.
