My gateway to Mali music
05/31/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Saw these guys at a free concert in LA last year and snatched this up. Gave me the same sensation --- of hearing something for the first time yet feeling you know it from somewhere lost deep deep min your memory bank. Lovely, swinging guitar work, good production (bumping). Dozens of Mali cd's later, the first is still one of my favorite."
Amazing...and the band's not bad, either

"Djelimady Tounkara is probably one of the greatest living guitarists in the world, but almost no one in the US has heard of him; it's a shame. Without the aid of any distortion in his sound he manages to do dizzying, flawless legato runs that put a shredder to shame, and rhythm work, oddly high on the neck that seems to turn itself inside out. And the vocalists, very much in the traditional Mali idiom, are fascinating in the way that they seem to disjoint the vocals from the musical accompaniment in some sections, then to lead the rhythm back into line. The horns draw comparisons to early reggae with an updated feel added by the keyboards. If you want to branch out your musical tastes into something outside current trends, Super Rail Band are a good place to start."
