Batoma Diallo – Bolo Di Yongo Ma
One of the more interesting thing I have discovered this year, as I meandered through my days of youtune, is an affection for world music that I didn’t know existed. I love the joyous purity of African music.
I was listening to a radio show on WFMU (a NYC radio station which I have previously written about) which plays a very eclectic range of music. On this occasion the DJ was playing some choice West African music which was so fresh, with some music from Mali that was particularly inspired. As it happens I could not find the exact song I wanted on youtube (Jah Youssouf & Bintou Coulibaly – Kahlan) but this one is equally fine.
