Music for 3.22.2010: Ali Farka Toure & Toumani Diabate, those masters from Mali

I feel like I have talked about them a few dozen times, so I will spare you any biographical information. If you don’t know about Toumani Diabate, the great kora player, or Ali Farka Toure, at one point Africa’s greatest musical asset, then you should. As spring and summer approach and a few road trips beckon, I suspect this will be the music of my travels. It isn’t the Sahara, but with endless (paved) roads ahead, this music will undoubtedly be a large part of the soundtrack of these journeys.
