Mali In The Mix(tape)

Click to enlarge

This weekend the Sound Travels Mixtape was a bit slower in tempo this week as we took a longer listen to some amazing music from the Sahara. Mali music in the mix, that was more a meditation on the many modes of making music from an unlikely third-world powerhouse of solid sould; Mali.

Much of the set was new(ish), with Vieux Farka Toure, JuJu, Tinariwen and Group Doueh in the mix; all of whom by the way, have new albums. With so many great new releases I wanted to showcase the sound, Here's that mix again...
