Mali Latino

Chart archive

Interpreter: Madou Sidiki Diabate/Ahmed Fofana/Alex Wilson
Label: Alex Wilson Records
Location: Mali/UK

Pianist Wilson and his two Malian cohorts create a mesmerising mash-up of jazz, Afro-Cuban and west African Mande, with bravura performances and superlative results. Combined with Diabate's kora and Fofana's balafon, the effect is invigorating.
