  Beautiful music.

Although the posts on the blog are generally all about me and my projects, I thought I should mention the CD I just bought.

It's called In the Heart of the Moon by Ali Farka Toure and Toumani Diabate. It's fantastic. Straight up improvisational Malian music recorded in a mobile studio in the middle of Bamako by the Niger river.

The liner notes are amazing as well. Ali Farka Toure has this to say:

"If you know something and don't want to share it, then you are selfish. You came after someone, and someone else will come after you. You can't learn the entire sea by heart. No. That is why god created waves in the river and in the sea. Some leave, and some come."
 
Comments:
Doh! I already have it and was going to give it to you - it's sensational!
 
I am a Toure fan but I haven't yet heard this record.
