Sounds great
David R. Nelson | Buffalo, NY United States | 03/18/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"KarKar from 1992 finds Traore in great voice in an upbeat recording of excellent production quality. His jazzy, bluesy guitar work is wonderful. The mix of western and Malian is evident. And it's as good as Toure or Boucoum."
Blues de Kayes

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Someday I'm going to have to go to Kayes and hear the music on the streets. If Kar Kar's music is any indication, I'll be in for a good time. I thought I'd heard all the deepest blues till I heard Kar Kar. His guitar playing makes us realize that the people didn't start playing the blues on plantations in the American south, they started back on the savannas of Mali and continue from the streets of Bamako to Paris, and right here in California. By the way, if you ever get a chance to see Kar Kar play take it. I saw him in Berkeley and I'm still wondering how he gets all those notes out of his guitar."
