Toumani Diabaté's Symmetric Orchestra/Toumani Diabaté: Boulevard de l'Independance [CD/DVD]

Album Remarks & Appraisals:

The Don of the Kora is back. Toumani Diabate, uncontested master of the West African harp-lute, returns with his most extraordinary album yet. A super-charged, traditional-meets-modern dance-band album, 'Boulevard de l'Independance' unites the two sides of this remarkable musical personality - the virtuosic traditionalist and the restless innovator- in one seething pot of rhythm. Be assured, this is like nothing you've heard from Toumani Diabate before.

Album Reviews:

Vibe (p.141) - "[W]ith swirling electric guitars, odd-metered rhythms, and brass veering from the hot vamps of salsa to the cool lilt of jazz. Diabete's harp soars over the top, showering down notes."
